I have a Bullingers 1926 Postal and Shippers Guide. There were 19 Palmyra's listed for the lower 48 states. The 3 Burlington related ones are listed as Money Order Post Office and Telegraph stations. Palmyra MO was listed and still is the county seat for Marion County MO.

The photo that showed a wood station marked “PALMYRA JUNCTION” looks to be the same one lower down that has a freight annex added to the left side of the original looking at the trackside elevation.

“Junction” makes sense from the satellite view since there is a track or ROW leading off to the top of the image along a street with the name “Railroad Avenue” or some such.  What state either is in is up to those who are knowledgeable about that portion of the railroad.

Actually, for someone interested in the subject, an article (with illustrations) of Burlington stations with the same name in different states would be interesting and perhaps a good resource.  One of the Acadia books has a photo of “Lawndale” illustrating a history of the area of Chicago by that name but shows a GN depot in Minnesota rather than the so far illusive photo of the original or replacement depot at Millard Avenue.  We’ve had photos of other stations on other railroads with Burlington? town names here but there are plenty of duplications just on the Burlington lines!
