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. On the upper floor visitors can find the New Zealand Hall of Fame and the Otago Art Society.
The building is built in a Flemish renaissance style of architecture, and the main floor boasts a fantastic mosaic floor that is constructed of 750,000 Minton tiles. The main platform of the station is also the longest in the whole country.
