Railway stations are so much more than functional buildings. They are places of welcomes and farewells. Imagine as you walk along the platform how many children were packed off to boarding school, how many soldiers set off to an uncertain future, how many sweethearts parted or were reunited. The present station building was donated by Queensland Rail. It was originally located at Yuleba, 50 miles west of Miles or 231 miles west of Toowoomba. Westbrook Correctional Centre rehabilitation program inmates dismantled and re-erected the station building at our Drayton site. It is typical of hundreds of small stations dotted around the state. With its hanging baskets, breezeway waiting area, ticket office, toilets, station masters office this design was replicated on rural lines all over Queensland.
