The Heidelberg Railway Station is one of a group of Edwardian railway stations of the island platform type, others including Essendon, Caulfield and Box Hill railway stations. Although altered, the station still retains typical features of this style such as curved parapets, contrasting red brick and render and cantilevered awnings. It is of local historical and architectural significance
HEIDELBERG RAILWAY STATION - Physical Description 1
The station building is constructed on an elevated platform between the two railway lines. The building is of red brick on a bluestone plinth, with a rendered string course running across the elevations and rendered moulded keystones above each window and door opening. Segmented arched roughcast rendered parapets between brick piers are located at each end of the building. The original windows have been replaced and the building has been extended at one end in the 1970s or 80s.
Riveted steel angle framed canopies are fixed to each side of the building, and have scalloped ripple iron fascias. The canopy extends along the platform and is supported on circular cast iron columns with curved angle brackets.
