    In Pioneer Park you will find the railway water town standing 50 ft high. It was built in 1893 and was used to pump water to the steam locomotives. This stopped happening in the 1960’s. On the side of the water tower is the old advertisement for Kalgoorlie.

    This is a small park beside the train tracks and the old station. In the park there is a bronze statue of Clydesdale horse along with its owner, his plough and his dog representing the early farming days in the area.

    The railroad first came to Merredin in 1893. The town became the locomotive depot in 1904 for the line and many smaller lines branched out from Merredin into the wheat belt area. The original old station was built in 1895 but was replaced in 1968 by a very close replica.
