This was originally a small bedroom, but in the late 1940s it was remodelled into a bathroom.

 Bedrooms

These two rooms are located in the west end of the station.  One is presently used as an exhibit room including a display of railway police badges, while the other is set up as a bedroom with railway uniforms on display. When the station platform was being restored a number of artefacts were found including broken clay pipes, hat pins, hair pins, ICR buttons and a Newfoundland 50 cent coin and these are on display.
