Cutty Sark


Cutty Sark is the name, of course, of the famous sailing ship, now preserved near the station in dry dock. This is one of the few surviving tea clippers of the nineteenth century. Built at Dumbarton, Scotland (in 1869) she was engaged on the China tea trade. Later, on the Australian grain run, she achieved a new sailing record of 73 days for the London-Sydney passage.

The station was opened on 20 November 1999.
