NZASM Standerton Railways Precinct

Standerton was an established town when the railways came. Its station building was designed from the offices of the Natal Government Railways. It was located a distance from the town centre and with its row of houses had the appearance of a separate village. During the extensive railways upgrades of the 1950s the station was demolished, leaving the houses isolated from the town, but as today, still doing service as residences. There are still remnants of the NZASM presence in the town by way of a single street of type C semi-detached cottages.
