The Albury Railway Station was built in 1881 at the end of the main south line, 642km from Sydney, NSW, on the border of Victoria. Clocks were not originally installed in the station, because until February of 1895 there was a 20 minute time difference between NSW and Victoria. It was at this time that Eastern Standard Time was legislated in both colonies. Ref: MAMA.
