What a shame.

Was it used for anything or was it just a building with a verandah and some seats to wait on?  If the latter, suspect it won't be replaced with anything more than a shade cover and seating.

The building was unused and derelict.

VicTrack / V/Line / Transport for Victoria / PTV (whatever the bureaucracy like to call themselves these days) will probable give Mooroopna Station the same treatment at what they did at Murchison East, build a simple shelter !

The station was unattended but certainly not derelict. In fact very well maintained by V/line and members of the Mooroopna community.

Good one emmastreet, thanks for the clarification there, I saw the attached picture in the news article and thought, very clean smart looking building, someone surely would be putting it to use, but after Nightfire's post, thought the pic must be an old one.
Anyhow it's a bummer she's  gone now.
