The clue is a bit vague, and thus it’s doing my head in. Another clue would stop me being so SULKY!

How’s that, both my temper and my guess?

It's not Buangor or Middle Creek.

It is, however, Burrumbeet. Station closed in 1987, passenger service through it withdrawn in 1994 and reinstated in 2004.

@Faredodger now has the staff.

Thanks, railblogger.  No more than an educated guess, I'm afraid.

We're looking for a station that went by four different names during its existence.

The caption reads 'Balwin-built [sic] W 217 on an up pass. at Alexandra Rd. which was re-named Lily in 1909, it eventually became Koriella in 1916.'.

The photo seems to have been taken before 1909, whilst Alexandra Road was the 20-year terminus of the Alexandra line. The line was extended to Alexandra in 1909, probably the reason for the first name change.
