Old Railway Station
Narrogin once employed 250 railwaymen. Its old station is fenced off but can be viewed from the bridge that crosses the line. Hopefully money will be found to restore it and to add a transport museum.
Settled in 1860
Early pastoralists found times were hard and supplemented income by cutting Sandalwood and Mallee trees. Narrogin developed when the railway selected nearby pool for water supplies for steam trains.
