Richmond Line


Track: 36.99 km
Stations: 11 / 20 in use

For most of its lifetime, this line extended from Blacktown to the north west of Sydney, ending at Richmond. From 1926 to 1952, it was extended to the township of Kurrajong, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. However, this section was not profitable, and after the line was damaged in floods it was quickly removed.

This line sees relatively small levels of traffic, and is single track for much of its length. It was the last line to be electrified in the metropolitan area.

A local group, TRAK (Tourist Railway Association Kurrajong), are planning to rebuild this line with the goal of operating steam locomotives on it.
