About SideTracked – Ranelagh



Ranelagh station is a small platform below now known Hotel Robertson. This little platform had had a long and interesting history. Nowadays the platform is primarily used by 3801 who provide heritage steam train journeys from Sydney to Unanderra via Moss Vale and Robertson stopping at Robertson Station and at Ranelagh platform for tourists to partake of a ‘high-tea’ at the Hotel Robertson.

Built in 1924, Hotel Robertson has had a few name changes along the way, Ranelagh House, Fountaindale Grand Manor and St Anthony’s. The building was used as a guest house, WRAAF base during the war, a hospice for returning pilots, St Anthony’s college and a Franciscan friary and seminary.
