Not sure whether this station has been technically closed/reopened but this station has been renamed twice, been relocated in 1932, and is certainly notable for a lack of aircraft in the area.

Have we all given up and decided to guess in alphabetical order?
I'll skip Alamein and try Altona Beach.
  raudteejaam Train Controller

Not Albion, Not Altona/Beach either.

Strangely enough, Gauntlet's suggestion isn't so stupid Very Happy

Bingo, Ardeer is correct!

It's unique status, which may have been a bit obscure, is it's the closest unelectrified station to Melbourne (hence what's NOT there). It opened as a passenger station in 1927, closed in 1956, demolished, and then rebuilt and opened in 1977 some 800m up the line. There were numerous sidings for manure and chemicals/explosives in the area.

This station was host to a specific-purpose siding.
Loading travelled in one direction only; empty wagons the other way.

Regular traffic was two loaded trains a day.
Other loadings were sporadic, and with different cargo.
