  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

Well done by the redoubtable Alamein_Line; Ascot Vale is correct.

AL; you'll find the staff next to the Kitty Litter box.

Must turn the light on next time before going near the Kitty Litter Rolling Eyes

Cheers, AL.

This is real motor spirit.

OK - let's change it to:-

This is potent motor spirit.

Just to get it out of the way ( not sure it fits with potent )  ...... Standard Oil Platform ( Mobiltown )

I'm glad you "got it out of the way" because  Mobiltown is not correct.
The answer is considerably shorter.

This is potent but drinkable motor spirit.

This is potent but drinkable motor spirit.

Reworded:-
It is potent but drinkable sprit coupled to a motor.

Ginifer?
  Valvegear Dr Beeching

Location: Norda Fittazroy
Not Ginifer.

You have the right idea, but chose the wrong spirit. Think naval !
  raudteejaam Train Controller

Carrum?
  Valvegear Dr Beeching

Location: Norda Fittazroy
Exactly; raudteejaam has it.  Motor spirit = Car rum.
I honestly thought this one wouldn't last a day.

Over to raudteejaam.

Alright, I'm not terribly good at making cryptic clues, but here goes nothing:

What's that river called, dude?
  Plan B Junior Train Controller

Yarraman
  raudteejaam Train Controller

Very good. Or...as I had it in my head..."Yarra, man!"
  Plan B Junior Train Controller

Thanks Raudteejaam

His first test one was 131 (in 1948 )

(Thinks: I wonder whether it pertains to Eric Hollies who took 5 for 131 in the fifth test at the Oval in 1948.

A certain F M M Worrell scored 131 for West Indies v England in Georgetown Guyana in 1948, to register his maiden Test century.

It was, "Frank's ton" which morphs pretty easily into Frankston.

I pass the bat to Valvegear

Cheers, Plan B.

Going out walking represents intelligent exercise.
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

My initial thought is Gowrie ....
  Valvegear Dr Beeching

Location: Norda Fittazroy
And a nice play on words by Alamein_Line sums it up - Gowrie it is.

The staff is next to the magazine rack this time.
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

Thanks , Valvegear !

That would be the magazine rack containing Cricket Australia , PBR News and 100 Cryptic Crosswords  ??????  Laughing
