The Seaford line extends to the southern suburbs of Adelaide. It diverges from the Belair line at Goodwood. The line includes Adelaide’s newest railway, with the section between Noarlunga Centre and Seaford opening in 2014. It was electrified at the same time that the extension opened and was Adelaide’s first electrified line. From the junction at Goodwood the line is double track throughout. Dual gauge sleepers allow possible future conversion to standard gauge. The Tonsley line branches off the Seaford line at Woodlands Park. Weekday services on the Seaford line typically alternate between trains stopping at all stations and trains running non-stop between Adelaide and Woodlands Park. On weekends all trains stop at all stations. Four weekday morning peak services commence from Noarlunga Centre. The line is close to the coast of the Gulf St Vincent between Hove and Lonsdale. There is a long-term proposal for extension of the line from Seaford to Aldinga.
