Description

The station complex includes two timber station buildings: a third-class building of type 4 design (1871) and a timber island/side building (1915) with shelter shed and a brick-faced platform (1915). A reverse skillion-roofed timber signal box (1915) and skillion roofed out of shed also form part of the precinct. The station plantings, lights and furniture are also included in the heritage listing.

Heritage listing

Wingello is an excellent example of a small country location with both platforms and buildings intact with timber buildings and a good collection of miscellaneous supporting structures. It is a rare example where both buildings survive and is typical of many similar arrangements which have now been removed. It is on a section of line where a number of early buildings survive to demonstrate early construction techniques and styles of building. The 1871 building is one of the earliest surviving buildings on that section of line.

Wingello railway station was listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999.
