Construction of the Windhoek railway station began in 1912 and was enlarged in 1929. The only surviving example of a Southwest African Zwillinge No 154A steam locomotive is on display, or at least one half of it. It was created in 1900 as works number 5376 by Henschel & Sohn Gmbh, Kassel, Germany. It entered service in 1904 and ran on the route connecting Swakopmund and Windhoek. Approximately 371 000 miles later, in 1939, it was taken out of service. In addition to housing a notable railroad museum, the Windhoek Railway Station building also stores a large collection of railroad-related artifacts, photos, records, and documents. It is a train station that serves Windhoek, the nation of Namibia’s capital. It is a significant station in the Namibian rail run by Trans-Namib.
