Sorry for the delay, I've been out of town without internet for a couple of nights, so I've only just now been able to update,

No I'm not Everton

But T347 has got it, I am Elaine. Congratulations!! Smile

Despite not being a junction station, Elaine did in fact have 3 platforms. There was a Side platform (1) that was home to the main station building as well as an island platform (2 and 3) with a back road. Elaine was at one point used to attach bank engines for the nearby gradients so a third platform was provided.

I knew it once had 2 platformsand a goods loop but this is a new discovery for me.

Sadly, the excellent stationspast site doesnt like me being in Taiwan - gives me a rather nasty message about "my behaviour" and using a "Dirty Chinese ISP". I have asked them to unblock the actual address as I don't want to go down the proxy path as that can upset other sites.

A junction that once had a lengthy platform and extensive loops and sidings, all fully signalled.

The station is long gone with no trains serving this place. All that remains is a lever to work the junction points and a short loop siding with trains passing through this outpost fairly regularly.

Although strictly speaking it's not a junction anymore, I'll guess Warrenheip?

Cressy is no longer a junction and has no sidings. Warrenhiep has no points to work a junction and sees more trains. Korong Vale has a little similarity but has a crossing loop and more sidings. Keep trying !

Thanks Rodo

I am on a branchline, and my station building still stands.

A thoroughly poor clue with no real identifiers. I presume that it is one still open, as you do not mention closure.

The Tocumwal branch has its terminus standing in good order.

Manangatang still has a station building

I also will go for a still intact, closed station on an operational branch line:

Yarrawonga?

Everyone so far is presuming operational line. Given that Rick hasn't said one way or the other, I'll lean the other way and nominate Beechworth on the Yackandandah branch.

Trentham?

Don't be sorry. Dribbling out clues is one way to prolong the quiz.
I shall nominate Mansfield

Wonthaggi?

Bright,   -----  this is a truly endless list. I think you should find some other identifying characteristic.

ie. Type of building time of closure etc.

I was full of flu medication and wasn't really thinking clearly when I wrote the first clue. It was a bit vague...

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).

Not Tocumwal
Manangatang
Yarrawonga
Beechworth
Trentham
Mansfield
Wonthaggi
