Whaa... of course Frankston has an overpass. Fletcher road. There was an LX closed in the late 70's or early 80's(?) at beach st. and the overpass was built much more recently to replace this loss of access for vehicles.

Well there you go - shows how long it has been since I ventured down Frankston way. I drive past on the freeway, but anywhere near the railway  station.

Oakleigh?
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Oakleigh is correct. Here's a view taken from the overpass the same day, showing Oakleigh A box. The quiz photo was taken from the other side of the railway, looking between one of the piers for the footbridge and the roadway. Photo taken 5 Sep 1968.
