The Fremantle line extends from Perth to the port city of Fremantle. It services several beachside suburbs and is double track throughout. The line was part of the first railway in Perth, opened in 1881. Beyond Fremantle it continues as a freight line to Cockburn North, where it links to the Midland–Kwinana dual gauge freight railway. Trains on the Fremantle line stop at all stations. Services alternate between trains terminating at Claremont and trains continuing through to Fremantle. Services from Claremont extend to the Airport line after travelling through the city. Showgrounds station is only used during special events at the Claremont Showgrounds.
