The station was the terminus of suburban services on the Whittlesea line, with duplication of the line being extended to the station in 1910, and was made a terminus for electric trains in 1921. In 1924 a 8 metre long turntable was provided at the station for the operation of an AEC railmotor between Reservoir and Whittlesea station, running two trips a day. Electric trains were extended to Thomastown station in December 1929, and the turntable was abolished in 1940.
