Former Powerstock Station
Former Powerstock Station
This old railway station was built for the opening of the line in 1857. There was just the one platform and a bungalow-style building. There were sidings to the rear. It has been a private residence since the 1960s (when the dormer windows were added), although the line did not cease operation until 1975.
