History

Toongabbie station opened on 26 April 1880. [2] The station was a small, unattended conditional stopping place. The first platform was on the northern side of the track. [3] When the line was duplicated in March 1886, an additional platform was added on the south side of the tracks. A disc on the end of a five foot pole was held up by intending passengers to stop the train. [3] The station was rebuilt in the 1940s when the Main Western line was quadrupled. [4] An accessibility upgrade, including lift access to the station, was announced in 2015. [5]
