Northcote railway station is located on the Mernda line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Northcote, and opened on 8 October 1889 as Middle Northcote, being renamed Northcote on 10 December 1906.[1]

The former goods sidings, located at the down end of the station, were abolished in 1986.[2] The crossover, also located at the Down end, was spiked out of use around this time.[2] It was removed at a later date.

During October 1987, the double line block systems between Northcote and Merri and Northcote and Thornbury were abolished, and replaced with three positioning signalling.[3]

Boom barriers replaced interlocked gates at the Arthurton Road level crossing around 1987/1988.[4][5]
