Statement of significance:

Lue is an excellent small third class standard country station group with the main elements of station and residence intact. It is well sited and prominent from the main Mudgee road forming a signficant element in the landscape and the understanding of the railways operation in the area. The buildings are of high quality and are good representative examples of their type. They indicate the importance of the location in the past for freight and passenger traffic and form an important link between the large Rylstone and Mudgee complexes, illustrating the range of sizes of buildings used at locations of varying importance. It is also in contrast to the smaller but similar design used at Capertee on the same section of line.
