HistoryEdit

Whyalla station was opened on 6 October 1972 by Prime Minister William McMahon at the same time as the Whyalla line.[1]

ServicesEdit

When it opened, the station was served by a daily service from Adelaide operated by CB class railcars.[1] The service was withdrawn in 1975.[2]

On 21 April 1986, the service was reintroduced as the Iron Triangle Limited. It was withdrawn on 31 December 1990 when Australian National withdrew all its South Australian passenger services.[3] The station was demolished in 2012.
