The Sloterdijk train station started as a simple train stop at the oldest Dutch rail road from Amsterdam to Haarlem, dating from 1839.
The station opened in 1956 to give a better connection to the new Amsterdam West suburb.
From 1983 the rail road tracks around Sloterdijk were moved. The Amsterdam to Zaandam connection was moved South from the Hem bridge to the new Hem tunnel.
In 1985 the tracks of the Haarlem connection were moved Northwards and a year later the branch over the West dike opened to start a new line to the Schiphol Airport.
The old station was closed and the tracks removed. The new station was build more North at the crossing of the Amsterdam-Haarlem line and the new South-North line.
In 2008 a part of the Zaandam line was connected to the station.
