Port Pirie Railway Station Museum

average rating is 4.4 out of 5

Ellen Street railway station was the second of six stations that operated successively between 1876 and the early 2010s to serve the rural maritime town (later city) of Port Pirie, 216 km (134 mi) by rail north of Adelaide, South Australia. Prompted by the need to have a station closer to the centre of the town than Port Pirie's inaugural station, it was opened in 1902 as a terminus for passenger trains on the main street. The railway was already present there – an unusual location in Australia. The striking Victorian Pavilion style of the building was unique on the South Australian Railways, and this factor assured its retention after closure as a museum of the National Trust of South Australia.

Other stations operating concurrently with Ellen Street station during its operational period between 1902 and 1967 were:
