Country Regional Network Railway Stations: Regional Heritage Pilot Study

In 2016, Cosmos Archaeology was contracted by John Holland Rail (JHR) Country Regional Network (CRN) to produce a pilot heritage study that examined a number of nominated railway stations on the CRN of NSW. The study was to inform future management and adaptive reuse options by identifying and analysing opportunities and constraints and providing recommendations specific to each station. Twelve disused and re-used railway stations in Central Western NSW were the subject of the pilot study. These are amongst the oldest railway structures in the State and range between 1876 and 1914. The heritage management study found that the majority were vacant and needed work prior to being leased or licensed. Most were considered suitable for adaptive reuse. Mudgee Railway Station was analysed for its success as it remains tenanted by a number of community organisations. The pilot study included an action plan for JHR CRN to implement regarding maintenance and further works and included recommendations for future uses.
