Hmm. There is a Hamilton and a Portland in each of NZ and the US (and possibly other countries not considered).  I shall have to ponder this one...

The gold medal goes to david harvey for his answer of Rochester. One on the line between Elmore and Echuca, and the other being the third largest city in New York State (behind New York and Buffalo).

Back to david harvey for the next quiz.

Rochester is also a town in Kent, UK - and from where you can catch any one of the 7 off-peak trains an hour to London.

Thanks for that.It was like throwing a dart at a map,  but puzzle me this one Riddler.?????????????????????




First Clue ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.  For a Victorian Railway siding, I am possibly the location  with the most words in my name, more than any other station, signal box, or siding on the VR network.

I'll take a stab at War Service Homes Commission Siding.

What about Trawalla & Waterloo Tramway Company Junction

There is no need to take such drastic action as it is not the War Service Homes Commission Siding and it is not the Trawalla and Waterloo Tramway Co Siding.

Maybe this will be a long haul so here is a recap plus more clues,                                              For a Victorian Railway siding, I am possibly the siding with the most words in my name, more than any other station, signal box, or siding on the VR network



I don’t expect the title name of this siding to be given parrot fashion so any attempt at the title and its location will suffice



I am on a closed line more than 550 kilometres 342miles from Melbourne.



The siding served a shire and 2 state departments


I opened in 1926 and closed in 1940.
