Railway stations where bus stop but not trains in Victoria

 
  beanzs27 Assistant Commissioner

i find it interesting that in some towns that have lost there passenger train services, the replacement bus still stops at the station while in other towns the bus stop some where else in town.

what stations still have bus stopping there?

I know of Mildura
Robinvale
Ouyen
Cobram
Hamilton
Leongatha
Stawell

not sure about these?
Woomerlang
Red Cliffs

anyone know of any others?

interesting that most of these railway stations stop having trains in the 1990's

Buses at Port Fairy stop opposite the former station, since demolished.

V/Line coaches don't stop at Mansfield Station, they use the MMBL depot on the main drag.

Nhill sees the Overdue - Whether that's a 'service' or not is debateable.

There are bus stops adjacent to the platform remains of Mernda and Yan Yean stations, though the bus service isn't technically a rail replacement.

I have been to St Arnaud station a few times no signs of bus stopping there anymore. I think the bus stop is behind the town hall

Koo Wee Rup is not at the station, the bus stop is the other side of the railway crossing on the east side of the main road that connects with the South Gippsland Hwy

Cranbourne doesn't count because metro trains stop there and the Seymour Albury section doesn't count because it is only temporary

The bus stop at Koo Wee Rup is just over the other side of the level crossing to where the station used to be. There isn't much left other than a platform. Regardless, I think this should count as it's no further than a carpark away.

Does Healesville count?
They're not Vline buses, it won't be the case for long since the Walker will be running soon, and I'm pretty certain the trolley service won't disqualify it.

Hi there

Yesterday I saw saw a Ventura bus parked on Earl Street near the site of Willsmere station (Old Outer Circle) with "TRAIN REPLACEMENT" on the destination.  Laughing
