Railway House 19 York Street Sydney designed by Henry E. Budden and Mackey Architects.

The original 12 storey Railway House was completed in 1935 for the Department of Railways and was combined with the adjoining Transport House in 1973. Railway House received the 1935 Sulman Award for Architecture Merit and the RIBA Architecture Medal in 1936.

Located on the corner of York and Margaret Street, above the Wynyard railway station, it is clad with green terracota and was featured heavily in the 2006 film "Superman Returns".
