As part of VicTrack’s 2014/15 Architectural Design Works Heritage Program, RBA were commissioned to assess and document repair works to four state listed heritage railway stations in the Mallee region – Kaniva, Patchewollock, Manangatang and Wycheproof. Annie and Margaret went on a four day road trip to inspect and photograph the station buildings and goods sheds, enjoying country hospitality and the Mallee countryside; the sites are located in four different shires. The stations are architecturally significant as the most complete examples of their different styles. Constructed between 1887 and 1919, the stations are on the Western (to Adelaide) and Mildura lines.
