St Leonards railway station is located on the North Shore line, serving the Sydney suburb of St Leonards including the nearby Artarmon Industrial Area and Gore Hill. It is served by Sydney Trains T1 North Shore line services.

History[edit]

St Leonards station opened on 1 January 1890 as the terminus station of the North Shore line from Hornsby.[2] On 1 May 1893, the line was extended south to Milsons Point.

In August 1989, the station was relocated to a temporary station south of the Pacific Highway to allow the site to be redeveloped.[3] After the redevelopment encountered financial problems and remained dormant for a number of years, the new station was not completed until February 2000.[4]

The new station was built with two island platforms to allow extra lines to be laid as part of a plan to quadruple the line.
