„Tenterfield Railway Station, NSW, Australia“

from the gallery of photography-by-odille

After seeing Earth Gypsy’s offering on Tenterfield Railway, I remembered I had some from my visit there in November 2005.

This is a 2 shot pano of the beautifully restored station building from the car park. I have no idea why the sky went such an odd colour and I have no suitable sky to patch in at the moment.

Tenterfield Station opened in 1886 and was the last station built on the Sydney to Brisbane railway line. For 103 years, Tenterfield Station made history – playing host to the full range of trains from yesteryear to the XPT.
Tenterfield Railway Station and yard is managed by Tenterfield Railway Preservation Society. It is among the most complete station precincts in terms of composition of railway buildings and small objects typical of an important regional style railway station.

Listed as one of only 6 Rail Heritage Precincts in NSW, the railway station is an excellent example of Victorian Gothic architecture and was built in 1886 as the terminal station of the Great Northern Railway.
 Although no longer served by trains the building remains as one of the town’s finest heritage structures. Internally the building retains its features as they existed on the last day of train operations in the 1980s.  Many of the original operational facilities are still in working condition, allowing the station to transform itself into a railway museum with a collection of well-preserved railway artefacts. Guided tours will take you through exhibitions in all rooms of the building, and passionate volunteers can talk you through the many exciting eras of railway, making you feel part of the operation.    Website –
