Beecroft railway station is located on the Main Northern line, serving the Sydney suburb of Beecroft. It is served by Sydney Trains T1 Northern Line services.

History[edit]

The original Beecroft station opened on 17 September 1886 approximately adjacent to the current Beecroft tennis courts, relocating north to its present site on 7 March 1892;[2][3] the disused down platform was demolished in the early 1990s. A disused dock platform for produce was located to the west of the platform.
