Stawell?

Duttonbay has cracked the code, Stawell it is.

The railway from Ararat to Stawell opened in 1876 but the station at Stawell was not completed and opened until 1877.  At this time, it was the terminus of the line from Melbourne.

The extension of the line from Stawell to Murtoa opened in December 1878.

Within the next few years, a branch line to Grampians opened up from Stawell, this branch lasted until the late 1930s when it was abandoned.

In 1993, with thanks to Mr. Kennett, the V/Line Dimboola train stopped running, and with that after more than a century, passenger trains ceased stopping at Stawell. This changed after successful lobbying from the local community and in 2007, the station was re-opened as a stop of the then thrice weekly Overland to and from Adelaide.

Duttonbay, the road is clear, you may proceed.

Thanks Gman_86

OK then. We are looking for a station which had turning facilities, but which was only a terminus for six months.
