I know that Spencer Street Station is going to be renamed Southern Cross Station.. but wasn't it meant to be called Federation Station? And just out of curiosity, who here supports the name change? I sure don't Spencer Street sounds fine.I thought Federation Station was going to be the new name of Flinders Street, but was later dropped.

But if SSS became Melbourne, what would you call FSS ?
The renaming of both the Ballarat line and Spencer Street is a load of crap.In an official leaflet, it states Spencer St station to be renamed Southern Cross Station. Although I like the name Southern Cross, Spencer St station should remain Spencer St.
Museum was fine and Spencer St is fine IMO niether needed to be changed.

Ok MFS (Melbourne Flinders St) and MSS (Melbourne Spencer St) both have M in front to represent that both stations are in the city of Melbourne. MSS is more used for Country and Interstate Services and while MFS is more as the major terminus for Suburbian passenger services. These names MFS and MSS have been used by the railways for a long time and this was way after Spencer St station had it's name changed as before that Spencer St Station was known as Batman Hill.
Those are the codes used by V/Line, and they are just codes. The stations are still named Spencer Street and Flinders Street.that is not fully correct cause interstate travel these codes are used to define which station. Especially with internal mail. it's like saying Sunbury is SBY, Bendigo is BXG it is well used in most railways. It's only a gunzel who don't use the railway terms and codes correctly, even tho you might know what the other is referring to.
