Willunga railway station
|Owned by||South Australian Railways|
|Operated by||South Australian Railways|
|Line(s)||Willunga railway line|
|Train operators||South Australian Railways|
|Structure type||turntable (until 1941); triangle (after 1930)|
|Opened||20 January 1915|
A station-master was appointed in 1915. A 60 feet turntable was installed during construction, but was removed to Marino in 1941–2. The triangle, later in use, was built around 1930.
The one train per week freight service, introduced in 1963, was scheduled so that locomotives did not stable at Willunga overnight and consequently, tenders were called for demolition of the employee's barracks and other engine facilities.[clarification needed]
The stop is now unused as the entire Willunga line was dismantled in 1972. The station building and platform remain.
