Thornlie Railway Station

Thornlie Railway Station is a Transperth railway station 17 km from Perth railway station, in Western Australia, on a spur line of the Armadale line. The station was officially opened on 7 August 2005, and normal train and bus services started the following day.

From Perth, the branch route starts from Cannington, bypasses Beckenham, and then switches to a central track which then travels underneath the Albany Highway-Roe Highway flyover. The tracks then returns to ground level and runs parallel to the freight lines until it reaches the station.

The station was designed to be compatible with an extension of the line, with most speculation that this will occur after the Southern Suburbs Railway and the New MetroRail project is completed. The possible extension of the Thornlie line may travel to Canning Vale and join the Mandurah line at Cockburn Central.

Famous quotes containing the words railway and/or station:

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
