On the FGSJ’s 2010 tour of Jamaica, we visited this charming building, which stands on the north-coast highway between Buff Bay and Port Antonio.
The once-flourishing Jamaican railway system was built during the British colonial era, and predates its more famous Indian counterpart. This station still boasts stretches of railway track, platforms, the ticket office complete with ticket window and iron safe, and the stationmaster’s accommodation upstairs.
Some privately funded restoration has been carried out to make it suitable for small-scale commercial use, but it would be wonderful to restore it fully and open it to the local community and the public.
We hold a number of talks each year with topics ranging from architecture and history to genealogy.
Join us to receive invitations to talks and social events, our newsletter and a chance to come on tours.
