On November 30, 1906, the line became a reality and the Iron Horse proudly steamed into the new railway station. (Rosenthal, 1979)

2016, July: Konrad Voges writes "I visited the Station about fifteen months ago. One interior feature intrigued me very much: Bead and Butt Panel Doors. I had seen that type of doors only once before - in the 1960s when I was employed in doing alteration work in the venerate old Carlton Hotel in Jo'burg. They were Burmese Teak fire escape doors covered in thick PWD brown paint."
