Springwood railway station is located on the Main Western line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the Blue Mountains suburb of Springwood opening on 11 July 1867.[1] It previously had a passing loop to the east of Platform 1.

History[edit]

The first railway line was put through the Blue Mountains in 1867, and the Springwood station was built in 1868. This station was replaced by a more substantial building in the Victorian Gothic style, constructed in 1884 under the direction of John Whitton, Chief Engineer of NSW Railways; a porter's cottage was constructed just west of the station. Springwood Station is the second-oldest surviving station in the Blue Mountains. It is listed on the Register of the National Estate[2] as well as having a New South Wales heritage listing.[3]
