Where am I? #1 (Victorian Country NON-cryptic Edition)

 
  Somebody in the WWW Banned

Location: Banned
This is a game of the NON-cryptic "Where am I?" game adopted from the one in the Melb. forum.  If you want to play with cryptic questions, see the thread here.

Basically, someone posts a question about a location (ie: "My platform was recently demolished") and YOU have to answer what location they are hinting about. If someone gets it without any subsequent clues, 3 points goes to them. If someone gets it with 1 clue handed out by the one who posted the question, 2 points. And 1 point if someone gets it after two clues have been posted.

Ie:
3 points: My passenger train service was recently suspended
2 points (clue): Freight trains still pass through me
1 point: I am in the northern region
ANSWER: Rochester
"Example"


Questions can be asked about any current Victorian country (Cannot be suburban) location, as long as it is current (ie as long as the line is still open. Doesn't matter if it has no pass. service).

I'll start with this question:

(for 3 points)
I still get a passenger train service, but it is infrequent compared to other parts of the state

No. For 2 points:

All scheduled passenger trains that pass through me stop here. Although passengers are often picked up and set down here, this is not the main reason that the trains stop at me.

Dimboola?
"Ben-P19"


The correct answer is Dimboola, as there is a stop there for a crew change on the 4-times weekly Overland service. Over to you Ben-P19
