Station Master's cottage at Glenbrook.
Made from local sandstone, it has the high iron roof and veranda typical of rural architecture of the day.
Used for many years as a service station, it was restored with the building of the new Ampol outlet.
The railway station was on the north side of the highway, opposite the tourist information centre. A short distance east, the old railway tunnel, now a mushroom farm, passes under the highway.
