Would it be Yarraville?

Well done OzzyAzza! Yarraville it is (rearrangement of "Any old VLine arranged" minus "Dandenong").

Thank you Smile

It has been a long while since I've done one of these, but here goes:

The Godfather of a German tram city

The Godfather is the Don; the German city of Essen has trams, so it could be Essendon.

Rail delivers a really pleasant journey = Riversdale.

I thought the perspicacious retromelb wouldn't let that one get away easily!

Cheers Valvegear - a train journey to Riversdale is often quite pleasant.  Next up...

Does anyone have a calculator?

First thing I did, and got 7,738. I hate to say it but that left me no wiser.

Assuming that means 1/7738... perhaps Stony Point (i.e. 0.000129... or point zero zero zero one two nine...)?

Turned the calculater upside down, and 7738 looks a bit like Bell ......??
  retromelb Chief Commissioner

We have a winner!  Well done Lad, Bell is correct and for the reason stated.  Over to you...

Thanks retromelb, that was different ...

So utterly short, her sudden end produced anger.

Gardenvale?

Not Gardenvale.

Much of this clue is to be taken literally.  No anagrams.

Take 2 - Southern Cross?
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Well done dallenger, Southern Cross is correct:

So = So
Utterly short = ut
Her = her
Sudden end = n
Anger = Cross

Over to you for the next one.
  retromelb Chief Commissioner

Good one!

Thanks.  I try to do something different, and to avoid anagrams - just like your calculator one.
