NZASM Rand Tram Railway Station
Roodepoort, Gauteng

NZASM: Nederlandsche Zuid-Afrikaansche Spoorweg-Maatschappij: Architect
Date:1896
Type:Railway Station
Status:Demolished

Towards the end of 1896 work started on the construction of a brick station building at Roodepoort, replacing the original corrugated iron halt building. Very little is known about this structure. Photographs show that its design was similar to that of Jeppe Station.
