The buildings are an excellent example of 19th century rail architecture and easily accessed by ramps thus avoiding stairs. The station is just off both Chapel Street and Dandenong Road and the train to the city is much faster than taking a tram.

By Australian standards this is an old railway station. It opened in 1859. It is on the Victorian Heritage Register and is recognised as having historical-cultural significance. If you're near the station why not try using it? Trams along Chapel Street can be annoyingly slow and far apart, and a train trip is usually quicker.

Have eaten here many times. This is our local for taking family and friends out for dinner. Eating out on the deck is best. Food is cheap, fast and full of flavour. Highly recommend it for sharing a meal with groups.

Unless you're going to Chapel Street, and getting off at Windsor station, there's no point going here. There are a number of stations along the Sandringham line that have heritage value (and it's not the only line that does). I wouldn't say it's a tourist attraction.

Unless you're a fan of late 19th century public architecture do not make a special trip to Windsor. If you are, you'll recognise it's quite a handsome example and worth conserving. It can only become more valuable to our community as other heritage stations are closed, altered, built over and generally compromised. Yesterday I travelled on the Sandringham line twice... More

The new redevelopment of this station has made it look a lot nicer. I enjoy catching trains to and from here. A must see when visiting Melbourne.

Yep, this is certainly a train station, which performs the same function as all other train stations. Really not sure why it's on here.
