Lillimur Victoria

Between Serviceton and Kaniva, is the small town of Lillimur. If there was ever a station building at Lillimur it has long since gone. Now just a grain siding with automatic signalling, the siding services concrete vertical, metal bin and large shed silos.
Lillimur was settled in 1877, when thew railway was built through to Serviceton: and a court house was built just on the edge of the town in 1887. It closed in 1892. In 1913, the post office moved in, in preference to building a new post building. Next to the Western Highway, this building just still stands, not only needing restoration, but to be modeled.

Out the front, not illustrated, is a horse hitching rail: just visible to the right, and an old lamp post.
This photo was taken in December 2008. A dry moment on a very wet day.
