Wallengarra Because of the different train line infrastructure used (known as a break of gauge) all passengers were required to change trains at Wallangarra/Jennings making the major station a popular meeting point and landmark for the twin towns. Passengers often had to wait lengthy periods while wool, mail and even circus equipment had to be transferred. Since the two state colonies could not agree on the design of the station and the platform shares land on each side of the state border, the awning design is on the QLD half of the platform is consistent with the other railway stations in the state, whereas the NSW architecture resembles railway design in the rest of the state. This is one of the most unique things about standing on the platform itself as you can literally hop between two different states.
