Abstract

Shrinking of the NSW railway system, has made many railway stations redundant. Where a railway service or a station is no longer required, the station may be; demolished; placed into a museum; or adapted and reused. However preserving the station's sense of place requires more than just preserving, conserving, or restoring the building's physical fabric. This paper presents a range of examples of reuse. Implications of reuse for the station's sense of place are discussed.
