Showgrounds railway station, MelbourneEdit profile
Showgrounds is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is located on the Flemington Racecourse railway line in the suburb of Flemington, adjacent to the Melbourne Showgrounds.
The station is only open during special events, such as the annual Royal Melbourne Show.
There are multiple signal boxes located at the Showgrounds, in addition to several portable buildings for staff amenities, and a wooden station building for selling rail tickets. There are also entry turnstiles for entry to the Melbourne Showgrounds used during the Royal Melbourne Show, and a Ticketek booking office for show admission tickets located on the platform.
It has no Metcard ticket machines or validators, meaning that the booking office, when staffed for special events can only sell pre-encoded tickets, and that tickets sold here cannot be validated until arrival at the final destination.
