  retromelb Chief Commissioner

Good answer raudteejaam but not the one that I have in mind.

Not:
Pakenham

It's a bit like SMART ARRAY.  Let's try Yarraman  (Array of NAMs).

Well done Lad.  Spot on in both answer and line of thinking.  Staff to you...

Thanks, blemorter ....

It seems like Shakespeare may have had something extra in mind.
  Valvegear Oliver Bullied, CME

Location: Richmond Vic
Cheltenham?  (I thought Eltham was a bit too obvious and didn't have "something extra".)
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Sorry, not Cheltenham or Eltham.

Williamstown
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Not Williamstown either, although that's a good answer.  Actually, Valvegear was closer.

Hint: it's to do with the words in the name of one of his plays (which rules out single-word names like "Macbeth" or "Hamlet").
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

What about Windsor?  Apart from being part of "The Merry Wives of..." I have no idea how else this might fit your clue though...
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Another reasonable reply, but no, not Windsor.
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

No answer, but I am intrigued by some of the possibilities here:

Much Ado about Nothing - Doncaster or Tullamarine
Love's Labour's Lost - the Metro line
Comedy of Errors - Myki

Sorry!

I like it !!!!

Stay with your first option.
  Plan B Junior Train Controller

That sounds like it may be morradoo on the stony point line.
  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

Location: Yarra Glen
Plan B has it again, Morradoo is correct.  Break it into two parts, "morr" and "adoo".  The clue said "seems like", because "morr" is not exactly "more" but is similar, and the "something extra" implied that something "more" was added to the "much".  The second part of the clue used the convention that in cryptic clues, the letter "o" can be used to represent the number zero "0" (or nothing), so in "adoo" you have "ado about nothing".  To misquote the great bard, "more (morr) ado about nothing".

Anyway, back to Plan B.  (and to duttonbay's clever list you could add Twelfth Night:  waiting for a cancelled train.)
  Plan B Junior Train Controller

Thanks Lad ...

Let us stay in character with the Great Bard, but just slightly mixed up with some good injected

I will try Westona as a guess
  retromelb Chief Commissioner
