HistoryEdit

The original station opened on 2 May 1893 when the South Western Railway opened from Claisebrook to Pinjarra.[1] As part of the electrification of the line in the early 1990s, a new station was built with the former signal box relocated to the Armadale Tourist Centre.[2] On 6 November 2004 another new station opened.[3][4][5]

On 15 July 1907 Armadale became a junction station when the Spearwood-Armadale line opened. This line closed on 23 January 1964.[1][6]

ServicesEdit

Armadale station is the terminus for Transperth Armadale line services.[7] It is also served by Transwa Australind services to Bunbury.[8] For a time, The Australind did stop at Kelmscott, however this was reverted in April 1992.[9]
