The Eston International is the railway station, the main hub of Redstone Railway Company Central Division. It was constructed over the place of Eastern Observatory Station, which served the traffic from March to September 2018.
The Eastern Observatory station was built by KrebsLovesFiesh in late March 2018, alongside with Crap Line to One World Trade Center and Limited Express 69 to RTN-maintained station in Eston Post. The station itself was very crude in design, and had confusing terminology. It was instantly mocked for relying on single-track sections, which made eventual refurbishment nearly impossible. In April 2018 the station received additional platform, which was not counted to the grid, as it served Boatlev technology, not standard rail.
Due to many problems and slow degradation of the building, on September 4th, 2018, ParrotAntics and Ugultu demolished the original building of the station, leaving Boatlev expansion, and demolished vast majority of the tracks, including nearby RT East line. It also needed to remove and seal a Dungeon of Toilet Spermkle, made by Neo. Other buildings were moved away, like Eston Post Town Hall, or removed via chunk regeneration. The new building was completed on September 6th, 2018.
The station building is much bigger than it's predecessor. It is two-storey buliding, with platforms on first floor, and waitroom on the second. There are 8 platforms: 6 double-edged and 2 single-edged. An underground passage between platforms 7 and 8 was built for RT East line passengers. Station's track slots are 5-block wide, and the tracks are separated with stone slabs. Each slot is guarded by gate opened through detector rail. Platform hall is covered with glass roof. Second floor is adapted to serve as waitroom, with cash offices and seats. Access between floors is provided through elevators. It also has a decorative Grundig advertisement slapped by Ugultu on the eastern facade of the structure.

The station's building was crude in design. It was 5 blocks tall and was made of brick, oak wood and glass. Station's 17 single track slots were described as "platforms" (according to Krebs' alleged inspiration in Japanese railways) and the gaps between tracks could be overrun by series of jumps.
