HistoryEdit

The station was opened in 1946, replacing the Sleeps Hill halt which was provided with step-down platforms south of the Sleeps Hill Quarry Sidings, approximately 500 metres south of Lynton station.[2]

In 1995, the western side platform was closed when the inbound line was converted to standard gauge as part of the One Nation Adelaide-Melbourne line gauge conversion project. The platform was rebuilt in 2007.
