The station building with a combined ASM's residence at Buangor was burnt down on 1 April 1925. First up it was decided to erect a concrete DR but that idea, in 1927, was dropped and the station building from Pittong was carted by road and re-erected at Buangor, but without a verandah, and a new building erected for the signal bay. The building in the photo came into use on 7 Feb 1929, with the new signal bay in use on 21 August 1929.
