Photo: Dunedin City Railway Station Architecture Otago South Island New Zealand

The Dunedin Railway Station, which opened in 1906 in Dunedin City in Otago on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, is one of the most recognizable buildings in the area. This is the fourth building to serve as the railway station.

Dunedin Railway Station, was first opened in 1906 in Dunedin City in Otago, on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand and is still in use today. When the station was first opened, it handled about 100 trains a day coming in and leaving the building and was very busy.

Since rail travel has decreased a lot in the last 100 years and more people now travel via plane or by car, the train station is a lot less busy than before. Only about 10 or so trains now come and go from here every day.

The building itself has been sold off throughout the years as well, as the whole structure does not need to be a station anymore. One area is now used for the boarding and disembarking of the Taieri Gorge Tourist Train, and most of the ground floor is used for a restaurant. ... continue below the picture...
