Tatonga, which was closed due to the Hume Dam and not re-opened on the deviation.

I'll guess Dunnstown, although I believe it was past the down-end junction with the section of line closed with Bungaree.

Bungaree?

I guessed Millbrook, then withdrew my guess as I had doubts as to whether its site was on the closed track or the open track.  But Wallace is out, Bungaree was in fact a junction at one time, so without any confidence I shall reinstate my guess of Millbrook.

It is not Millbrook or Dunnstown.

It is however Bungaree which to my understanding was never actually a junction but somewhere around there was the meeting point between the two branch lines that would form the main Melbourne-Ballarat railway.

The train staff will now be handed over to @Gman_86.

With the greatest respect, railblogger, Bungaree was a junction for a time, the junction of the Bungaree Racecourse spur, which closed in 1951 (although not used since 1940).

I too was of the opinion that Bungaree was a junction station for a while, to the point that Bungaree was the answer of a quiz I initiated only last month, and Faredodger himself supplied the winning guess. Nevertheless, with the clues given, I still chose Bungaree as the correct answer for this one.

I assume there are no objections that we move on?

In that case, I offer up the first clue in the new quiz:

I am seeking a closed station. Trains still pass it every day.

Yes, junction with the Racecourse branch from 1900. Junction pointed were lifted in 1953.

I stand corrected.

My next guess is Gordon.

Don't worry about it, railblogger.

I'll guess Montgomery.

It is not any of:
Gordon
Montgomery
Glenrowan
Chewton
Bronzewing
Taradale
Burrumbeet

To be clear: Passenger trains pass by this location still to this day.

The platform and buildings are long gone, but if you have a good look around,
evidence of this stations past existence can be found.
