In the recent past, by now the protocol has been to give some kind of clue......

I'm guessing your looking at a reconfigured combination of Rental - ( a regular payment ) - and C ( as in the sea, for water sports ) to provide Central....
  Spletsie Chief Commissioner

Not Central, but I like your thinking bov.

The first part of your reasoning is on the right track, but not the second part.

Definitely time for a clue.

The original clue was:
Regular payment for water sport splashed about.

Here is an alternative clue for the same station, using the same cryptic device as the first clue:
Lease fee for oar activity is crazy.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

I am probably on the wrong track but what about Lisarow?

5915
  Spletsie Chief Commissioner

Not Lisarow, but the last three letters of your answer is on the right track, 5915.

Berowra! That has to be it!
  Spletsie Chief Commissioner

Sorry Sydney Metro Vlogs. Not Berowra.

I think what might have caused some confusion and puzzlement (literally) here is the unusual structure of the proposition. The two parts require two new words to be found and then for them to be blended in an anagram.  Also the inclusion of the word 'for' seems to suggest it's somehow part of the solution. I don't think it is.

My guess is that the answer simply mixes "rent" with "rowing" to produce 'WERRINGTON".

Steve
  Spletsie Chief Commissioner

Werrington is correct!

Yes, Werrington uses the cryptic device of an anagram of 'rent' and 'rowing'.

Although the word 'for' was not part of the defintion of rent or rowing, it was used as a linking word often found in cryptic clues.

Well done sydneyshortnorth.

Over to you.

I guess that could put it as Central or Emu Plains, or anything in between.
I think this looks like a general knowledge question rather than a cryptic. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

It’s a cryptic question.
  Old Northern Locomotive Fireman

My first thought was Wentworth Falls, but I'm not sure if that comes under Sydney Trains.

As a point of order, the Intercity Stations of the old CityRail are still "Owned" by Sydney Trains, as are the Intercity trains, just operated by NSWTrains staff.

How about Penrith? (letters found in "trip on the")

Not Penrith but smart thinking!

Are we at the point where another hint might shunt this along a bit?
