St Leonards station (Sydney)
St Leonards station is a railway station serving the Sydney suburb of St Leonards. It is on the North Shore railway line. The station is served by the T1 North Shore line and T9 Northern Line of the Sydney Trains network.
St Leonards station opened on 1 January 1890 as the terminus station of the North Shore railway line from Hornsby. On 1 May 1893, the line was extended south to a harbour-side station at Milsons Point.
In August 1989, the station was relocated to a temporary station on the southern side of the Pacific Highway to allow the site to be redeveloped. After the redevelopment encountered financial problems it remained dormant for a number of years. The new permanent station was not completed until February 2000 as part of a development known as The Forum.
Platforms & services
The station features two side platforms. There are four platform faces, enabling the platforms to be converted into two island platforms if the line is quadruplicated.
