This is the story of the station buildings of the Victorian Railways, told for the first time as a comprehensive history. It begins in the 1850s when the colony’s first railways were opened by privately owned companies and follows the colourful story of station building by the Department up to the turn of the twentieth century.
Andrew Ward is a retired architect specialising in the study of historic buildings. He is the author of studies leading to the inclusion of many station buildings on the Victorian Heritage Register and has an intimate knowledge of railway architecture in this State.
