Pakenham railway station, Melbourne

Pakenham is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located in the suburb of Pakenham, and is the terminus of the Pakenham railway line. The station is located at the eastern end of the Main Street level crossing, and is classed as a Premium Station in Metcard Zone 2.

The station consists of an island platform, with a large pebblemix building housing an enclosed waiting room and a ticket office. A large Metcard machine is located inside the waiting room, which is able to dispense most ticketing options available and also accept notes and coins. Stabling facilities are located adjacent to the station. Its platforms are accessible from Railway Avenue.

The station first opened on October 8 1877, as one of the original stops on the Melbourne-to-Sale railway line, although the whole line was not completed until 1879. In 1970 the station buildings were replaced with a new pebblestone structure and in 1975 suburban services were extended to the station. The station was upgraded to Premium Station status on March 15 1996. In 2004, the local council issued a proposal for the redevelopment of the current station.
