List of closed railway stations in Victoria

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Overview map.
Overview map.

This is a list of former railway stations and railway lines in Victoria, Australia. Many of these stations and lines have been abandoned or demolished. There is a strong desire by communities to have many of these re-opened to better link Regional Victoria to the state capital Melbourne. Public transport has become increasingly popular in the 21st century for environmental, convenience and affordability reasons. For closed railway stations in suburban Melbourne, see List of closed railway stations in Melbourne.

Mildura line

Originally withdrawn on 12 September 1993. Once served by The Vinelander service, the line branches from the Serviceton line at Ballarat.

Leongatha line

The passenger service was withdrawn on 24 July 1993, but the Dandenong to Cranbourne section was later electrified and became part of the Melbourne suburban rail network in 1995.

Closed lines

The following lines are either closed to regular passenger services, freight only, part of tourist and heritage railways, or closed and removed.[1]
