Lalor is not the one I have in mind.

When opened, I was a Country station (not suburban), and I had a different name.

Please give current name and previous name.

Keilor Road - Sydenham - Watergardens.

Not Sydenham-Watergardens.  In the early 20th century, the suburban boundary on that line was at Diggers Rest.  (Spelt correctly in those days, Diggers' Rest.)

Let's try Monbulk / Belgrave.

Aircraft/Aviation Siding/Aircraft Siding?

Location: Yarra Glen
Aircraft doesn't qualify, because the suburban boundary on that line was at Werribee.  But Monbulk / Belgrave is OK, because the suburban boundary there was at Boronia.  Monbulk / Belgrave would have been on the narrow gauge line then, but it still meets my criteria.

I was actually thinking of Balee / Wattle Glen, where the suburban boundary was at Diamond Creek, but anyway, over to Valvegear.

Thanks Lad . . .

This station has been renamed once, and is also now not within the suburb for which it is named.

Burwood - previously Hartwell ?

And Alamein_Line has triumphed!

It is Burwood and, as he says, was originally called Hartwell.

The station is about 10 minutes walk from the former family home. When I was younger it was within Burwood. Some years ago, boundaries were redrawn, and the area became part of Glen Iris (much to my late mother's disgust!).

Alamein_Line has the stick.

I only had one platform. Sounds like we are talking in the past tense.

My suggestion: General Motors?

Grr! I was tossing up between White City and General Motors, and obviously chose badly Smile

Definitely, since General Motors had two platforms.

In 2012/13 about 70 stations got new exits with myki readers for their down platforms.
Their placement left a bit to be desired.
The station I'm thinking of (which has a two word name) received a new exit in a excellent spot on platform two.
It's right next to the station's pedestrian overpass.
I'm not sure if platform one can be reached via the overpass.
The station is also close to a level crossing.

Thanks Gauntlet.

The only access to this station on foot is via a pedestrian level crossing.

It's not Beaconsfield, Hartwell or Keon Park.

Second clue:
A standard gauge track runs near the station.
