retromelb?  Hello?
  retromelb Chief Commissioner

Apologies, lost track of this one.  Back on the rails now...

Former factory has your art.

It's an anagram of South Yarra, but I don't quite get the former factory bit.  Do you mean the old Rosella factory, the one which exuded all those wonderful/not so wonderful smells as the train passed by?
  retromelb Chief Commissioner

Well done Lad!  South Yarra is correct, anagram of "has your art".  The "Former factory" is a reference to the Jam Factory which is now quite an arty place.  I certainly remember the strong smell of yeast in the mornings passing between the station and the river!

Have not been that way for a while.  Never mind, try this:

It's left out of a modern airline, but an older airline had twice as many.

Time for a clue:

The word "left" can be used to represent the letter L, as in L and R, common abbreviations for left and right.  So "left out" could mean that the letter L has been removed from something .....??

I can suggest that Lilydale was once Lillydale, but have no idea what an airline has to do with it.Embarassed

Not Lilydale or Lillydale.

Expanding the clue a bit:

It's left out of a modern oriental airline, but an older Australian airline had twice as many.

Also think Roman numerals, e.g. L=50 and C=100.

JAL less L then C then ANA

Jacana is correct, for the reasons stated.  The old Australian airline is Australian National Airways (remember them?).  They were founded in 1936, were taken over in 1957 by Ansett, to form Ansett-ANA, but the "ANA" was dropped from the name in 1968..

Anyway, over to Plan B.
