Old Gillitts Train Station

The old Gillitts train station was scanned as part of research projects for two land survey students from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. The Gillitts Train Station on the line in the middle of Gillitts is derelict and currently not used, but is a beautiful example of 1900-era architecture. Dating back to the Boer War in the first decade of the 20th century, the train station was a stop for British soldiers transiting from Durban through to the Midland battlefields as well as returning wounded soldiers.
