About SideTracked - Exeter Station



Historic Exeter Railway Station opened in 1878 as Badgerys Siding, and was renamed to Exeter on 12 August 1890.

The Exeter station complex includes a timber station building with a skillion roof (1891), a timber waiting shed on platform 2 (1891), and an additional timber station building dating from 1915, with two brick-faced platforms. It also includes the two storey gabled single box on platform 2 dating from c. 1897, the corrugated iron lamp room, signals, platform plantings and platform signs.

Added to the NSW heritage list in 1999 Exeter is one of the best small station complexes in the State, and demonstrates all of the elements of a turn of the century rural station, especially with it's rare on-station two level signal box.
