History of The Station
Old Park Station dates from 1896 and was in continual active service as Johannesburg’s principal passenger station until its closure in 1951. It was the central station on the Rand Steam Tram suburban railway serving the region and is now one of only two stations surviving from this railway line, the other being Krugersdorp Station.
This gives it a high degree of rarity and importance as a relic of railway heritage. Its period of service also meant it was active throughout four Wars, where it was used to transport soldiers, refugees, horses, munitions and other goods for the war effort. This gives it High social and cultural significance.
