Abandoned Railway Station in Newstead, Victoria, Australia

A little while ago, I stumbled across the abandoned railway station at Newstead in Victoria. The station was opened in 1874 and only closed in 2004, so it's still in reasonably good condition. It's away from main roads but it's also situated near houses, a combination that has ensured it has experienced very little in the way of vandalism.

This old station is towards the top of my list of favourite abandoned places. The atmosphere was just so warm and cosy from the minute we stepped inside - it was as though the place was desperate for a little company.
