Is the different configuration the only one on the particular line, or the only one anywhere?

Hartwell?

Well done xxxxlbear, Hartwell is the station I had in mind.  Over to you...

Yay, thank you, Retromelb.
Hartwell station is unique for a couple of reasons-not just for its platforms. The building itself was transported from the Walhalla line....talking about good recycling Smile

Time for a new clue:

Up until the 1980s, I was un-electrified. The only way to reach me was by rail motor or loco hauled carriages.

Werribee?

Yay, we have a winner.
Whilst Galvin fits the clue perfectly, I actually had in mind Werribee.

Full marks to retromelb, but the gold star is awarded to railblogger.

An interesting 1975 timetable appears here in which the Melbourne-Werribee-Sth Geelong timetable appears.
Looking at Werribbe now, it is hard to believe that it was only connected to the suburban network in 1983.

Well done to both takers, and over to you railblogger Smile
