South Yarra Station is mega busy with three sets of dual tracks passing through the station to service four train routes. It is also a major transfer point for passengers from train to tram and vice versa. It is perhaps the second busiest station outside of the city, Richmond being busier. In peak times this sole entrance is very crowded as the trains also bring in masses of school children too.
New buildings mocking the mock Tudor buildings. It is Sunday morning so things are pretty quiet today.
Just at the side of the station is what I think an old electric substation, perhaps for trains, but more likely trams. It is now a nightclub called Rah Bar. It has a very cool Moroccan themed interior. There are some photos here. It is much larger inside than it appears.
Later: I have just remembered there was a tram electrical substation nearby and I made mention of it in this post about Le Louvre, an upmarket frock shop which reopened in the substation.
At the side of bridge over the cutting where the trains travel is the old South Yarra Post Office. There is now a miserable little post shop somewhere in Toorak Road.
A new building was bulit connected to the rear and was controversial at the time, but I think it works well enough. It doesn't dominate or tower over the old. Both the old and the new hold commercial premises.
