The Northfield Railway Line was opened on 1 June 1857. It was originally planned to extend the Stockade line eastward to Modbury, passing through the suburb of Valley View, however the terrain is hilly and would have needed deep cuttings or tunnels along the corridor. Pooraka Station was at the midpoint of the line and closed as an attended station on 22 October 1982. Read more HERE
