Westmead Railway Station
Westmead is a railway station on the Western and Cumberland railway lines of the CityRail network. It serves a well established residential area, nearby major hospitals (Westmead Hospital and the Children's Hospital at Westmead) and local educational institutions including the University of Western Sydney and Westmead Teaching Hospital. It has four tracks and two island platforms. Each island platform serves trains of the same direction. Immediately east of Westmead, the 'Up Main' track passes under the 'Up and Down West Suburban' tracks, so that east of Westmead, tracks are arranged 'Up/Down/Up/Down' and west of Westmead they are arranged 'Up/Up/Down/Down'. Also east of Westmead, points allow trains to cross between 'Main' (fast) and 'Suburban' (slow) tracks.
Between 1922 and 1932, the Rogans Hill railway line branched from the Main West line immediately to the west of Westmead station.

Famous quotes containing the words station and/or railway:
“It was evident that the same foolish respect was not here claimed for mere wealth and station that is in many parts of New England; yet some of them were the first people, as they are called, of the various towns through which we passed.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understandmy mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arms length.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
