Railway in Australia

  2. 2. A train station, also called a railroad station (mainly in North American English) or railway station (mainly in British English) and often shortened to just station, is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight. It generally consists of a platform next to the track and a station building (depot) providing related services such as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single track main line, it usually has a passing loop to facilitate the traffic. The smallest stations are most often referred to as 'stops' or, in some areas of the world, as 'halts' (flag stops). Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses or rapid transit systems. There are so many railway stations in Australia, we will description some of them, they are:
