A timber railway station at Rylstone is a conundrum. All other stations on the line, large and small, were brick: Piper’s Flat, Ben Bullen, Capertee, Clandulla, Lue, Wallerawang and Mudgee. Most of the public buildings in Rylstone were built of stone.
How did that name come about? I guess it is tall and steep like a woman's petticoat, but you might have other theories. It was surely named by a man.
