Revesby railway station is the main intermediate terminus on the Airport Line of the Sydney Trains network. It services the Sydney suburb of Revesby. Revesby has an island platform and a side platform. It is serviced by both all-stations and faster limited-stop trains. An additional island platform and new footbridge were built as part of the Rail Clearways upgrade, which allows Easy Access for wheelchairs via lifts.
Revesby railway station opened with the rest of the East Hills railway line in December 1931. The original configuration was an island platform served by a single track. The line was electrified in 1939. In 1956 a crossing loop was opened. It was not until 1987 that the line was fully duplicated through Revesby, in association with the construction of the extension from East Hills to the Main South Line at Glenfield.
Construction of a second island platform commenced in 2006 as part of the CityRail Clearways Project. One of these platforms opened in 2008, providing through services to the west. The existing platform 2 became a centre turnback with only a few services initially using the facility. In October 2009 the timetable changed, and Revesby replaced East Hills as the major intermediate terminus.
