Gatekeepers had cabins….

Original post 20 March 2019:

Nice to see this #gatekeepers cabin is still there, next to #BrunswickStation, albeit slowly rotting away. Built 1888 for the man who sat there all day opening and closing the #railwaygates, then pulling on the levers inside to signal (via rods and chains) the next gatekeeper to close or open their gates ! Last system to be automated in the 1990s and so much was intact and put on the heritage register.
