Not Yea, Everton, Yarra Junction or Tallangatta.

All guesses are on the right side of the state. Yea is the closest guess in terms of geography. A guess has had the correct line.

OK then, been a bit busy, sometimes life even gets in the way of RP!

Simple statement to begin with: we are looking for a location which was for a time the terminus of a currently open line.

Port Fairy?

Port Fairy?

An interesting response. I would have thought that if any qualifiers to the word "terminus" were to be used, Port Fairy might warrant "ultimate".  That's a hint...

Schoolhouse Lane (1872)?

Schoolhouse Lane (1872)?
Valvegear
Correct. A very temporary terminus, April to October 1872.  I would have also accepted, following further planned clues, Dysart or Goulburn Junction. This little spot has a very complex history.

Over to you, Valvegear.

Thanks duttonbay.

This location is a junction with "DIY" points and signals.

This location is a junction with "DIY" points and signals.

It is on an open line; one branch is closed.

Not Mortlake Junction.

Shelbourne Junction?  Sort of open line, being on a TR.

It's a bit of guesswork, but I'll take a stab at Maldon Junction.

Everybody is too far to the south.

How about Nowingi ,              Is that to far north?
  Valvegear Oliver Bullied, CME

Location: Norda Fittazroy
Nowingi is much too far north, and much too far west. Go north out of Melbourne.
