HistoryEdit

The station was built in 1882 on the Sandgate railway line (now the Shorncliffe line). At that time, it was expected that this station would be the junction for the future North Coast railway line and was named Clapham Junction railway station. However it was later decided that junction would be at Northgate railway station and in 1879 it was renamed Banyo railway station.[1]

2012 truck collisionEdit

On 14 September 2012, a loaded semi-trailer was stuck on the level crossing at the station, when a northbound train collided with the vehicle, which caused it to be thrown into a southbound service. Rail services on the Shorncliffe railway line were disturbed for the rest of the day while a rail safety regulator investigated the collision.[2]
