back in the game....

Has Ararat A Box been guessed? Not certain about three staff and ticket sections though.

You say it had both Broad gauge and Standard gauge platforms at the same time.

You have ruled out the North East line.

You say it is still open, and that it is still a junction.

You say that the name you are looking for is the name of the station plus a single letter.

You have already ruled out both Ararat 'A' and Ararat 'B'

As far as I can tell, North Shore is all that is left, yet, to my knowledge, it never had its own signal box, but my sources may be wrong, so a total shot in the dark for: North Shore 'A'

I don't know of it ever existing, but I am plum out of ideas.

Ararat A and B boxes have both been ruled out already.

North Shore  only ever had one signal bay.

These are the Facts applied to today.

There is a Broad gauge and a Standard gauge platform.

Nothing to do with the North East line.

It is still a junction.

The station and the signal box have the same name (signal box name plus a single letter of the alphabet.)

The signal box isn't operated any more.

The only one that I can think of is Maryborough though I'm Pretty certain that doesn't have an SG platform.

Railblogger ; it is not Maryborough A or B box  and I too am certain that Mary B ,doesn't have an SG access to the platform.

Im Sorry but I have made a slight error in this clue.

The station and the signalbox both have 2 words in their name.The first word of the station and the signalbox are the same. ..    The next word is different .The signal box then has a single letter of the alphabet following.

I hope this hasn't thrown to many sleuths off the rail's .

"It is not Sunshine and don't call me Shirley" That would be to suburban and not fit the criteria.

I'll get over it.  (Sob sob!)  It threw me off the rails.  But I concur I've probably made a few people suffer in the last few months.

I'm still none the wiser; but more out of desperation than sagacity I'll make one last throw of the dice and suggest North Geelong A, noting that it doesn't appear to have been mentioned as yet (unless in my now befuddled state I've missed it), appears to be in an absolute spaghetti of tracks and near a number of industrial spurs, and is located nearer to North Shore (which has broad and standard gauge platforms) station than North Geelong station.

Beyond that, I'm out of guesses.

The North East line has been ruled out which leaves us with very few stations that have had both broad and standard gauge platform access.

Maryborough has been canned, as has Ararat.

By the process of elimination, North Shore must be the station in question, but you aren't after the station, you are after the signal box, and you said yourself that North Shore only had a signal bay, not a signal box per se.

I don't think North Geelong 'C' has been guessed, so what about that?

I,m sorry to all the people out there but I gave an incorrect clue that may have thrown some individuals off. I said that the signal box and the station had the same name (True), and had a broad and standard gauge platform. This should have said, the signal box and the station have the same name but ONLY a Broad Gauge platform . I honestly thought that the standard gauge platform at North Shore was named North Geelong.  Im sorry for any inconvenience or pain and suffering this may have caused to you or your family.



I don't think North Geelong 'C' has been guessed, so what about that? Halleluiah  brother  we have a winner

Gman_86 is correct North Geelong 'C' Box is the correct answer .

The train staff and ticket sections were ……North Geelong 'C' Box to Fyansford cement works about 5 kilometres long….                                  North Geelong 'C' Box to Grain Loop about 3.4 kilometres long………….....................................................,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,...                           North Geelong 'C' Box to Warrenheip. In 1994 ,on Weekends only, the electric staff system was suspended and the staff and ticket system established to reduce staff being roosted  on weekends . On Monday to Friday the Electric Staff system was re-established.

Wow. Well, we got there. I'm not quite sure how, but we got there.

Now, for the new one:

In my hey-day, I was a junction station. The through line at my location is still open but any evidence of the branch line is now long gone.

Moriac? Junction for Wensleydale - hmm that reminds me, time for cheese...
  Gman_86 Chief Commissioner

No. Neither Heathcote Junction or Moriac are the correct answer.

In my hey-day, I was a junction station. The through line at my location is still open but any evidence of the branch line is now long gone.

I am not any of:

Heathcote Junction
Moriac
Carlsruhe
Wangaratta
Horsham
Waubra Junction
Branxholme
Cressy

Next clue:
Today, all station infrastructure has been removed from my location. All that remains is the track itself.
