Ok, I have a standing station building on a closed branch line.
I am one of two stations of this style still standing (there may have been others demolished previously). They were built within a year of each other, but are seperated by over 350 miles by rail.

I was the terminus for a few years, which may explain why the building is brick, not timber like the others on the line.

St Arnaud ?

No, I had better say Koroit. Even though I think it is the same as many other brick stations.

Avoca, even though I think it is similar to other nearby brick stations. Anyway, line is out of use and it is still standing.

Avoca - Bridgewater and Avoca are the same style according to Andrew Wards analysis..

Clue -According to the 1964 Railway map of Victoria, I'm actually 355 and 3/4 miles by rail from Bairnsdale, my "twin". (Ignoring the Flinders - Spencer St measurement thing...)

I am a closed station on the V/line pass network and the name of the station is not the name of the town it is in.

Clue-: I was closed in 1981 and all that remains are the platform mounds of the station and cattle race. I am 5 K's from the town i'm named after. Cheers.

Lindenow station must be close to 5 km from the town centre. It is a closed station on a current passenger line.(i assume that is what you meant)

The station is right in the middle of the tiny village of Lindenow South.

Several years ago I visited the site and found a platform mound in fair order but cannot recall a cattle race.

Correct Rodo, cattle race mound is on the nth side up end. Over to you.

A small station with a crossing loop and goods siding that served a small village with a store, pub and  school. It was closed at the end of the 1970s when train schedules were sped up by V/line. Nowadays barely a trace remains and the line that served it is duplicated.

Manor lacks a village and all those facilities.
