Although the railway line from Blacktown to Richmond opened in 1864, the south eastern portion of the town was not well served by shops and transport. As early as June 1893 residents petitioned the Office of Railway Commissioners for a platform to be erected at the level crossing in Bourke Street however East Richmond station was the last to be constructed along the branch line and was officially opened on 2 July 1939. The station was constructed to provide easier access to transport for the population of East Richmond as well as students of Hawkesbury Agricultural College. The original buildings included an office and small waiting room, no other facilities were provided for travellers until recently when the station platform and facilities were upgraded.
No longer listed on this inventory. The original platform buildings and other associated structures are no longer in existence. Date of demolition not known.
