Wallangarra Train Station, QLD by 

Wallangarra Train Station sits straddled over the NSW and QLD borders and is a uniquely designed architectural piece of history. It is a fantastic example of the differences in style and rivalry between the two states during the colonial era. Queensland wanted the a bullnose verandah, whilst NSW demanded a more modern flat roofed style canopy. As neither side would give in, a compromise was reached in which the station has both styles, one on each side.

Wallangarra Station was also the break of gauge between the two states and their differing gauges of tracks, meaning many an individual would have to climb out of the train in the middle of the night to exchange trains for their journey south.

The station played an important role in WW2 when many soldiers were routed through the inland line and up/down through Wallangarra on their way to convalescent hospitals in places in the Northern Tablelands or on their return to Brisbane.
