Forgive me if this thread has been done before.
SOUTH COAST LINE:

- Kings Cross
- Martin Place
- Town Hall
- Wolli Creek
- Stanwell Park
- Fairy Meadow
- North Wollongong
- Kembla Grange
-- Haywards Bay --
- Albion Park
- Oak Flats
- Shellharbour Junction
- Bombaderry (Nowra)
- Port Kembla North
- Port Kembla
> Penrose station should be located next to Anglican Retirement Villages St. Lukes Village, considering elderly people don't drive often, a station next to the retirement village will be convenient.
> There is a fairly new housing development located right next to the railway line, yet no station, that should change.
> I don't see why Shellharbour Junction Station had to be the end of Dunmore Station, there is still a fair distance between the two stations, but with that being said, the low development near the former Dunmore Station would have to reduce it to a request stop.
> Kiama Downs has been proposed before, but with the closure of Minnamurra and Bombo stations, I don't see why the addition of one station needs to be the end of two, considering the distance between stations.
The South Coast line should receive an additional local services on top of the exiting one, a local service from Waterfall to Kiama, allowing services from Sydney to bypass stations between Wollongong and Kiama, and allow Kembla Grange station to receive daily service. After Wollongong, Sydney services should only stop at Unanderra, Oak Flats, Shellharbour Junction and Kiama. If Illawarra Regional Airport were to receive regular airline service, Sydney services should also stop at Albion Park, with a free shuttle bus providing service between the airport and the station.
On top of that, all Thirroul - Port Kembla services should be extended to Waterfall, terminating at Thirroul never made sense to mee because the stations between Helensburgh and Thirroul still service Wollongong suburbs, some Sydney services stop at those statiions, extending all local services to Waterfall would mean all Sydney services could bypass those stations (apart from peak hour and late night services).
CENTRAL COAST AND NEWCASTLE LINE:
- Mount Colah
- Mount Kuring-gai
- Berowra Opal
- Hawkesbury River
- Woy Woy
- Point Clare
- Niagra Park
- Dora Creek
- Cockle Creek
> Blue Haven Station should be located near the Motorway link bridge and a pedestrian pathway should be built from the station to the cul-de-sac of Waterhen Close, a commuter car park is essential at this station.
> Eararing Station should be a request stop serving the Eraring Power Station, I am still unsure if this station would be appropriate.
> Glendale Station may become a reality, if so, express trains should stop here instead of Cardiff so passengers can connect to the bus services easier.
> Garden Suburb Station should be located between the dead ends of Wimbledon Grove and Park Road
> Westfield Kotara Station should be located on the bridge over Northcott Drive, apparently people were "revisiting plans to move Kotara rail station" closer to the retail centre back in 2012, but I don't see why a new station just can't be built on the bridge, leaving the existing station to serve the residential area of Kotara, alongside the Blackbutt Reserve (if pedestrian access were improved). An alternative to the construction of this station would be to provide a free shuttle bus from the station to Westfield, and an easy accesss upgrade for Kotara Station, but a new station closer to Westfield complete with trolley bay will be more convenient for shoppers.
Not much to say about stopping patterns here, although I don't see why Intercity trains stop at Eastwood, that station was once the closest to the Macquaire Park area, but since we now have the Epping to Chatswood rail link, I don't see the need for the Eastwood stop.

> Hexham South Station should be located near the Hexham McDondalds, and function as a request stop.
> Rutherford West should be located near the dead end of Waterworks Road
>Abserglasslyn Station should be located near the Woolworths with a pedestrian pathway linking the grocery store and the station.
> Oakhampton Station already exists (although a more significant platform may be required), but it's abandoned, it should be re-opened and function as a request stop.
> Bolwarra Heights Station should be located next to the Maitland Vale Road bridge
> Rutherford Station should be located near the new residential development, the issue here is that the Scone branch of the Hunter line receives little service, this would make it difficult for residents of this area to catch the train, a solution for this would be to have every second Telarah service terminate at Rutherford instead.
>Whittingham once existed according to google maps, it should exist again and function as a request stop serving the nearby Skydive Hunter Valley.
> Darlington Station should be located at the cul-de-sac of Elliot Close and function as a request stop serving the northern Singleton residential area.
> Singleton Heights Station should be located at the cul-de-sac of Elliot Close and function as a request stop serving the northern Singleton residential area.
> Integra Coal Mine Station should be a request stop serving the coal mine of the same name.
