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. Services from the Fremantle line typically extend to Midland after travelling through the city. Showgrounds station is only used during special events at the Claremont Showgrounds.
