Canberra railway station is located in Kingston, Australian Capital Territory. The station is the terminus for CountryLink rail services from Sydney. It is the only operating railway station in the ACT. In 1913, when Canberra was founded and named, work began immediately on a new rail link to the capital from Queanbeyan (on the Goulburn-Bombala branch line) to the Eastlake station site, now the station at Kingston. The line was constructed by the New South Wales Public Works Department on behalf of the Commonwealth.
