Adjacent to the Geraldton Central Business District was the Westrail Marshalling Yards and Railway Station. Today, part of the site is the Batavia Coast Marina and once the new Southern Transport Corridor is built, the single track railway line adjacent to the Railway Station will also be removed.
The once extensive facilities have all been removed except for the Railway Station. The photo's below indicate some of the views between 1989-1993.
The trackside of the Heritage listed Railway Station. The station was served by a dead end track and run round loop.
Today, a single track disconnected from the main system exists. The Railway Station is privately owned and stage one of an extensive restoration program has been completed by a locally owned company.
