- Rupertswood railway station, Victoria
OPENED=Between 1909 and 1913
Rupertswood is an abandoned railway station on the Melbourne - Bendigo railway in the suburb of Sunbury in Victoria,
Australia. It was the last station in the state that operated only to service the adjacent Salesian College, with services only stopping to pick up and drop off school traffic.
The platforms were opened sometime between 1909 and 1913 to serve the Rupertswood mansion. Until the Second World War the main use of the platforms was for the annual picnic held at Rupertswood. From 1962 the platform has been used daily by students attending the college until
2004, when the Victorian government embarked on the Regional Fast Rail project. Due to the school traffic only status it was officially closed in December 2004.
