Mitcham
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Mitcham is a good guess, being the highest station between Melbourne and Lilydale/UFTG but it's not the station we seek.

Watsonia?
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

Balaclava ( Surprized me - Windsor being in a cutting and Balaclava elevated makes one imagine it would be the other way around ! )

EDIT - As can be seen by my comment , I did not mean to say Balaclava !!  Will leave the error to stand Embarassed

This station did really, truly, have interlocked gates at one time

A punt at Berwick.

Not Berwick.

Another hint - this station is not shown in the 1927 Grades Book

That snookered me, didn't it !
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Ha. The station is not shown, but its location is.  I guess that's another hint - the station in question was opened after the time the 1927 Grades Book was was assembled.

Methinks Huntingdale may be worth a quid or two on the tote.
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Well done! Huntingdale it is. Not listed in the Grades Book, but the North Road LC is shown and is at a higher elevation that Oakleigh.  Quite clever, I thought, to choose a station not in that book!

My next clue was going to be something about being a future junction, but was not needed. Over to Valvegear...

Truly, thou art a devious fellow, duttonbay.

Now:- An adjacent level crossing and its signal box were all removed.
