Collingwood is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located in the suburb of Abbotsford (despite its name), on the Epping and Hurstbridge railway lines. Collingwood is unmanned and is in Metcard Zone 1.

Facilities

Collingwood station is located between Stanton & Gipps Streets rail overpasses, with station access from both.

The station consists of two elevated side platforms: Platform 1 (Flinders Street bound) has a large weatherboard building, while platform 2 (Epping & Hurstbridge bound) has a smaller weatherboard building. A large Metcard machine is located at the entrance to platform 1, which is able to dispense most ticketing options available and also accept notes and coins. A small coin-only Metcard machine is located at the entrance to platform 2.

Collingwood Town Hall is a short walk from the station, on Hoddle Street.

Collingwood station opened on October 21 1901 as "Collingwood Town Hall". It was renamed "Collingwood" in 1909. [ [http://www.vicsig.net/index.php?page=infrastructure&name=Collingwood VICSIG Infrastructure - Collingwood] ] The station building and platforms were rebuilt in 1985-1986.cite journal
