One of the six train stations on the old Carlingford train line has already been demolished. Two stations are protected by heritage listings.
In the weeks leading up to Easter 2020, the Rydalmere station was removed. The station had been erected on the 28th June 1993 and appeared to hold little historic value.
The train stations at Dundas and Clyde are listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register which means they can’t be demolished. The state government is planning to incorporate the old Dundas train platform into the new Parramatta Light Rail infrastructure. The station at Clyde is still in use each day because it’s part of the western train line.
Rosehill train station was a unique suburban train station in New South Wales — One of its train platforms was long enough to service a 16-carriage train. The lengthy platform was located on the eastern rail line — and helped move racegoers straight from the track and onto the train.
Two train stations that also appear to be earmarked for demolition in 2020 are located at Camelia an Telopea.
The rail line north of Parramatta Road through to Carlingford has been removed and the sleepers have been stacked just south of the old Rosehill train station.
The state government says the new Parramatta Light Rail will be 12km in length and travel from Carlingford down the old rail route to Camellia, then west to Parramatta, North Parramatta and Westmead. The light rail maintenance facility will be located along the old Sandown train line — Just east from where the Camellia train station was located. The line is expected to open in 2023.
