Originally built in 1897, the steel structure of the 'Old Train Station' has been at the corner of Carr & Ntemi Piliso Streets in Newtown since 1995. Plans to turn the station into a transport museum are yet to be realised. It was first dismantled in 1952 & rebuilt in Kempton Park as a training station. Its current placement next to Nelson Mandela Bridge is almost directly in line with the new Johannesburg Park Station, its modern counterpart.
