More information

General background information:
The secondary building has existed next to Gilze Rijen station, in North Brabant. It was built around 1920 and was demolished around 1960. The secondary building housed the functions that did not fit in the stately station building. The toilet groups were accessible from the head of the building. Into the east direction: the storeroom of the station manager, the lampisterie comprising cleaning table and the fuel room and attic for brushwood were located. At the end there was a storage room equipped with a large roller shutter.
Lampisterie: Place where the (train) lamps were stored, cleaned, filled and issued.
Brushwood was kept for the initial fire to fire-up steam engines

Architectural details:
The secondary building is characterized by the narrow shape and the hipped roof. The dormer windows provided additional light in the various rooms. The secondary building was actually on the platform, right next to the main building. The secondary building has also a number of style features that can also be found in the main building. The typical layered brickwork around different frames on the north facade can be mentioned as an example. However, the roller shutter at the warehouse is the same as that of the goods shed. The secondary building thus forms not only a functional, but also an architectural link between the buildings.
