Where am I Victoria? - Non Cryptic - #3

 
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

I did find my station lists - I had 1890, 1920 and 1950. I cannot find any other stations where the name is an anagram of another. Other than, perhaps, places like Sheep Hills which became Sheephills.

Here's a quickie:-

There is a station with the same name in another State.

Not Guildford, Maryborough (Fairfield is suburban Melbourne so not correct).

There is a station with the same name in another State.

It is an adjoining State.

Not Guildford, Maryborough (Fairfield is suburban Melbourne so not correct), Bridgewater, Westby.

There is a station with the same name in another State.

It is an adjoining State.

It and the line are now closed.

Balmoral?

Location: Richmond Vic
Not Guildford, Maryborough (Fairfield is suburban Melbourne so not correct), Bridgewater, Westby, Balmoral.

There is a station with the same name in another State.

It is an adjoining State.

The station and the line in the adjoining State are both closed.

The Victorian station we seek is closed, but on an open line.

Faredodger must have posted just as I was editing my previous post having realised that it was confusing.

Here's the complete plot so far:-

Not Guildford, Maryborough (Fairfield is suburban Melbourne so not correct), Bridgewater, Westby, Balmoral, Winton.

There is a station with the same name in another State.

It is an adjoining State.

The station and the line in the adjoining State are both closed.

The Victorian station we seek is closed, but on an open line.

I posted, then edited.  But I reinstate my guess: Winton.

Not Lis less but certainly Lis more!  

Now that Faredodger and I have stopped fencing he has the road.

Thank you Valvegear.

We're looking for a closed station that was located outside the town of the same name, in a locality whose name was (at least for a time) that of a different station elsewhere in the state.

Something rings a bell here; is it Moira?
  Faredodger Chief Commissioner

Location: Hiding anywhere the ticket inspectors can't see me
Not Moira.

Further clue:  The closed station that is the subject of this clue was on a on a now-closed line; the other station was also on a now-closed line.

I don't know the answer, but this post will hopefully remove the erroneous hbedriver headline from view.

We're looking for a closed station that was located outside the town of the same name, in a locality whose name was (at least for a time) that of a different station elsewhere in the state.

Or to clarify, the station was a terminus which didn't quite reach the town it was meant to represent (call this Township A), but the line ended just outside, in, as I said, a locality with a different name (call this Township B).  There was a station elsewhere, also on a line now closed, which had the same name as Township B, but that isn't in Township B but elsewhere in the state.  It didn't have the same name as Township B for long, being changed to the name it bore for the remainder of its existence.  (I think I've confused myself now.)

It is not Moira, Tarrawingee or Clyde.
