HistoryEdit

Leumeah station opened in 1886.[2] The station is the main access station for Campbelltown Stadium, home of the Wests Tigers National Rugby League team and the Western Suburbs Magpies.[3]

In January 2013, the Southern Sydney Freight Line opened to the west of the station.

Since the second half of 2017, Leumeah railway station has been served exclusively by the Airport and East Hills line, meaning commuters have to change at Glenfield to travel to either the city via Granville station or to Blacktown station via the Cumberland Line.[4][5]
