STANDARD VICTORIAN RAILWAYS
Another ‘V. R. Series’ HO Scale Model by the
OUTBACK MODEL COMPANY
In the years before World War 1, it was decided that because of increases in traffic on the Victorian Railway system,
as well as a need to improve and replace the current facilities, a standard station design was developed.
These newly designed station buildings were built mainly in the country where the system was rapidly expanding.
Examples can be found at locations such as Riddells Creek, Sea Lake, Mirboo North, Nyora, plus many more.
They came reversed, clad in weatherboards or brick, with various types of roofing materials, as well as varying
in outer decoration and finish. The paint colours also varied widely. Many minor and major alterations
were made to the buildings over the years. Some were even picked up and moved to other locations.
