The paper intends to investigate the relationship between railway infrastructure and the city, especially focusing on the location of the stations and on their effects on the urban structure and on the development of suburban areas. The industrial growth of suburban areas was strongly affected by the presence of railway stations. The case of Verona shows two different examples of the relationship between railway infrastructures and urban development. The Porta Vescovo station, in the beginning the main one, had an immediate effect on the establishment of the first industrial factories in Verona. Only later the Porta Nuova station acquired a higher importance, because of both the short distance from the city centre and the presence of transport facilities, and the creation of an industrial area in the neighbourhoods. The case of Verona, an important railway junction, reveals a particularly significant association between the growth of the suburban area, its industrial development and railway infrastructures
