Panorama of the Serviceton Railway Station in Serviceton, 435 kilometres north-west of Melbourne in the West Wimmera region of Victoria, Australia.
Construction of this station was completed in 1889 when the town Serviceton started to develop as a major border crossing between South Australia and Victoria.
The station was built on the old border where the South Australian and Victorian railways were joined in 1887. Due to a surveying error the border was moved 3.6 kilometres west in 1913. The station with 15 rooms on 3 levels closed in 1986.
