One of Queensland's last remaining timber railway stations is getting a makeover.
The heritage-listed Cooroy Railway Station was built in the 19th century and is one of nine remaining timber stations in the state.
Rory MacManus from Queensland Rail says there has been a lot of research done to ensure the restoration is authentic.
"We've had extensive consultation with heritage experts to ensure that the new colour scheme is in keeping with the character of the heritage-listed building," he said.
"There's been paint scraping, trying to get back to the original paint that's been on there and we've also looked at the different photos that are around of the building back in its heyday."
