TURRELLA is the name of the main station
and terminus of the tramway. This station is the most impressive on
the railway with its 3 terminal roads, Normanton style station canopy,
signal box, sandstone colonnade, viaduct, and sub way tunnel portal.
As well the Adjacent Railway Hotel, station carpark and monument to
Turrella Tramway’s historic first locomotive, “The Turrella
Thunderbolt” make for an striking vista. Turrella is linked to
the rest of the tramway via Fossil Point Bridge. All trains commence
their journey from Turrella to either Bigglestown, Luddenham, Coal Creek,
Girlieville or back to the maintenance and locomotive stabling facilities
at Loco Shed. Turrella Terminus was also built with a subway line planned
as a future addition. The subway would be operated by an over head pantograph
electric tramcar set.
(Nomenclature: Turrella shares its name with a suburb on the East Hills
line of Sydney, two stations away from birthplace of the present CME
of the Turrella Tramway. The CME received an actual redundant station
sign from Turrella Train Station for his 40th Birthday 10 years ago.
