List of Melbourne railway stations

Wikimedia list article

This is a list of the 200 currently operating suburban railway stations (216 including greater metropolitan stations) in Melbourne, Australia. The stations make up 16 railway lines going out from the city (and 4 greater metropolitan lines), as well as the central City Loop.

There are also a further 19 stations on 3 old, volunteer-operated, tourist railways. These are not a part of the suburban network.

Stations are broken up into 2 Myki ticketing zones (some stations are included in both zones, where tickets for either zone may be used), as well as the City Saver area, which is within Zone 1 and covers the central business district. On March 4, 2007 zone 3 was made part of zone 2.[1]

  • Stations listed in bold are "terminus" stations, where trains sometimes stop and change direction. On some lines, some trains will be timetabled not to go to the end of the line. Shuttle trains are also run back and forth between terminus stations on some lines.
  • Stations listed in italics are "premium stations" that are manned first to last train by staff who provide extra help and information to commuters.
  • Stations followed by a star ( * ) are "host stations". These stations are manned during peak hours only. Some are manned only during morning peak, some during both morning and evening peaks.
  • Listed in brackets after each station is that station's 3-letter code. These codes are used by the railway control system, but can also be used when looking up the Connex SMS Timetable.
