Eveleigh, Locomotive Workshop

The former Eveleigh Railway Yards are part of the Australian Technology Park, in the inner city suburb of Eveleigh. This heritage listed Locomotive Workshop was built in 1877, consisting of 16 bays originally used for one or more trades required to repair or manufacture locomotives and their components. It now houses commercial office and exhibition space.

  2. Trying to decide if that is graffiti or purposeful art on the wall. It's interesting whichever.

    1. I think it's a graphic representation of a locomotive on that barrier fence.

  6. I love poking around historical buildings and thinking about the stories they hold. I'm with Klara that it's nice the building has been repurposed and not torn down. #LTTL
