We visited it during our Easy rider tour. Nice building but not much to see, so if it's on your way, that's good, otherwise, not a big deal to miss it according to me.

Culturally significant to the locals as a reminder of French colonial times. Nice building but not a " must see" place.

Old train carriages have been set up as shops as has the entrance hall. We weren't really too sure why our Tour took in this 'sight.'

The railway station is free to visit and nice to see. There are old trains and locomotive to see. Unfortunately only from the outside. It's not a must see but a short visit is nice if you are nearby. Only 30 minutes is enough to see everything.

If you have a bit of spare time take a walk out to the Railway Station. They have some old carriages set up out back for you to walk through and see what it was like back in the day. It's nothing mind blowing but the building has been well maintained and is unique.

Railways enthusiasts and tourists will love the journey. Only 20 minutes one way not through the most picturesque scenery but it's a historic railway and feels a unique experience. If you are penny pinching then the rock bottom ticket is fine on a hard bench.

Very nicely kept. Worth seeing the old trains from yester year. Can ride the train 20 minutes out for the experience. Cog's. Fun to do.

It's a lovely Art Deco building. A pity that the "stained glass" is actually just painted. I X think we picked a bad time to visit as there were 2 coach loads of Koreans ignoring the "do not climb" signs and taking their selfies all over the old steam engine. It's just a short walk from the lake so worth... More

The old railway station has a old steam locomotive and carriages. There was also a dining car cafe, but the choice offered was very limited. I am not sure that its worth visiting unless you combine it with a trip on the train and the timings were not convenient for us.
