During the city's most prosperous years the Railway Station was the country's busiest, handling up to 100 trains each day. Construction began in 1903 and was officially opened in 1906. It was designed in the fashionable, desirable and highly expensive Edwardian Baroque style where architect George Troup uses an experimental collaboration of Classical and Neo-Gothic imagery. The combination of over-the-top decoration and the intricate use of contrasting dark basalt and white Oamaru limestone earned the architect the nick-name "Gingerbread George". Today, daily sightseeing and rides from the station through the Taieri Gorge and up the Coast are the main attraction.

Managing to gain AFOL choice award (thanks Judges) at this year's CBS. I am hoping to bring the model again next year, fully completed.
