Subiaco railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Fremantle line, 3.7 kilometres from Perth station serving the suburbs of Subiaco and Wembley.

History[edit]

Subiaco station at platform level

Subiaco station opened in 1883.[1] The station closed on 1 September 1979 along with the rest of the Fremantle line, re-opening on 29 July 1983 when services were restored.[2] Up until the 1980s there was a freight receiving depot at this station, and a third platform.

As part of the Subi Centro project, 900 metres of rail line and the station were sunk in 1997/98.[3] The elevated signal cabin was restored and relocated to Whiteman Village Junction on the Bennett Brook Railway in January 2000.[1][4]

Until the opening of the William Street platforms at Perth station in October 2007, it was the only underground railway station on the Transperth network.

Services[edit]

Subiaco station is served by Transperth Fremantle line services from Fremantle to Perth that continue through to Midland via the Midland line.[5][6]
