St Leonards railway station is located on the North Shore line, serving the Sydney suburb of St Leonards. 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.[1] 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.[2] After the redevelopment encountered financial problems and remained dormant for a number of years, the new station was not completed until February 2000.[3]

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. However this is now unlikely to occur, with it now proposed to build underground platforms at St Leonards as part of the Sydney Metro line.[4]
