it is. Over to you RustyRick
Originally opened in 1861/2 (with, or shortly after, the opening of the line) as Lancefield Road
, then renamed to Lancefield Junction
in 1881/2 when the Lancefield line was opened, then renamed to Clarkefield in 1926
. Actually it had 4 names, as it was Clarkfield for a few weeks in 1926 - presumably a spelling error that was rectified when someone noticed. There is a large timber viaduct over Bolinda Creek about 1-2km out on the Lancefield line that is on the Heritage Reqister.
There is also an historic Bluestone "Watering Hole" in the form of the Coach and Horses Inn which dates from 1857 (before the railway) about 100m from the station.
I have a family connection to the place as my Great Grandfather was a Ganger there from about 1884 to 1888, during which time he married the daughter of another Ganger and their first child was born there.
