Albury railway station
Albury railway station is a heritage-listed railway station at Railway Place in Albury, New South Wales, adjacent to the border with the state of Victoria, in Australia. The buildings were erected in 1880 and 1881, at a time when increasing wool trade from the Riverina region was driving expansion of the railway network. The station was the terminus for the Main Southern Railway until 1962. The yard was designed to facilitate the interchange of goods and passenger traffic arriving on tracks of different gauges and remains as an operational railway yard and passenger station. To accommodate the break of gauge, a very long railway platform was built, the covered platform being one of the longest in Australia.Photograph credit: David Gubler
