Middle Greek!  Is that somebody between Phil and Joe, the owner of the local fish and chip shop?

Despite all the clues, I remain clueless at the moment. I will contemplate further...

Regarding Trentham, Midgeley's log tram was braod gauge - this line contained the largest bridge in the Wombat Forest, 16 spans, 60 metres in length and 6 metres high. Hayden's log tram was also broad ...

That is not good news. If anyone has authoritative information it would be nice to know what's happened.

As well as Walhalla and the bridges in Stringers Gorge, the buildings a ...

Well, this one appears to have stagnated a bit.

Further clue:

At this location passengers could get refreshments, for at least part of its history.

Faredodger

WSITD: Trentham?  It' ...

Still very slow here. If there's been any improvement it is not noticeable to me.

I know this happened at Mirboo North, but the train ran to the terminus. Still thinking of others...

Curdie?
"Faredodger"


Curdie is the correct answer.  

The station was at 146¾ miles and the Victorian Agricultural Lime Co's Siding at 146¼.  Just half-a-mile (800 metres in the ne ...

None of Melton, Stratford, Dennington, Cavendish or Casterton

We are looking for a station immediately adjacent to a bridge.

The distance from the station to the bridge is very similar to the len ...

[quote=Faredodger]Mike McCarthy appears to be right. My source was the spring 1967 issue of [i]Light Railways[/i]. I suspect from the wording the author (M. Plummer) wanted to say the Fowler from Da ...

OK then, we are looking for a station immediately adjacent to a bridge. The distance from the station to the bridge is very similar to the length of the bridge.

[quote=Faredodger]Yes, it is [b]Darnum[/b], which closed, I believe, in the 70s (Nilma closed on the 50s).

Between about 1890 and about 1903 a tramway (known as the Darnum-Elinbank tramway) ran sou ...

I think I got it the wrong way around.  Nilma closed before Darnum. Both had tramways. So let's say Darnum, with Nilma the previously closed station in one direction, and Yarragon the currently ...

Nilma? No idea of any musical connection, but it had a tramway, and the next station of Darnum closed long before Nilma, while Warragul remains open.

Gellibrand Ballast Siding, on the narra?

That's cool. No different from starting off "I'm a closed station on a closed line".

What about Derinallum, and the Mt Elephant ballast siding?

So many to choose from over almost 170 years of railways in Victoria. Trawalla?

Was Boisdale ever a terminus of the Briagalong line? Sugar beet to Maffra maybe?

To be fair, these flights are designed to take Poms to the sunshine so they can get sunburnt. Everything else they do is the same as at home (food, drink, etc) so it can only the sunburn which is the  ...

What about Meringur then? 50+ miles from Redcliffs and 9 and a bit miles to Morkalla

Edit: Got tricked by the use of a less than character.

The station in the town of Red Cliffs, known by the VR as Redcliffs?

Barnes?

Koo Wee Rup?

Rushworth?

I looked at Leeor Loop, and thought there was a station of that name in my era (say, the 60s). I was confusing it with Lillimur.

A very definite wild stab.  Jackson? (No idea if a station of that name ever existed, but there is a loop)
