The bookshop at Central closed last year and is now a staff COVID related testing centre.

Their Headquarters is at Henderson Rd Redfern, a medium walk from the station, or by the 309/310 bus from Central which stops closer. They do on-line mail orders.

Is this bookshop once again open in the concourse at Sydney Central Station? I always visited there when in Sydney, then a few years back it vanished, banished to the suburbs somewhere. On my last visit, last June (when transTasman travel was allowed for about two weeks, so I raced over to ride the new tram lines for the first time) the bookshop was still absent at Central. But googling it just now seems to suggest it has reopened. The Facebook page also claims it is there:

> Australian Railway Historical Society Bookshops are located in Located at Central Station on the Grand Concourse and in the the inner Sydney city suburb of Alexandria. Or you can visit our website and purchase available products through our online shopping facilities.

The Online outlet is closed for maintenance, it claims when I click on it. See the bottom of this link, which also mentions a reopening at Central:
