Strathfield Rail Station

The Strathfield Rail Station was redeveloped in 1927 as a full scale suburban station, catering for local as well as regional traffic, rather than just a rural stop.   The redevelopment of the station increased the number of train platforms from 4 to 6 and the overhead walkways (featured in the photograph), a feature of many inner city stations, were demolished and replaced by underground ramps.

The station reconstruction, complete with a subway and access ramps to the platforms was also associated with the electrification of the Sydney Rail network which began in 1924.
