I can find five three-syllable names between Valley Heights and Lithgow, and that's where I grind to a halt.

I can't make sense of the clue either, but I'll make a wild stab at Newnes Junction.  I am aware that it is apparently no longer in regular use, and I'm not even sure it counts as suburban, but it was the junction of a long-closed line that used Shay locomotives, which may have had three cylinders, as, apparently, some of them did.  Beyond that I haven't a clue.

Wikipedia says that D57s (3 cylinders) could not operate west of Wallerawang because of their weight and/or loading gauge. Pity the station has four syllables and is just beyond the wires. Pronouncing the name conjures up the sound of a steam loco going up hill. I am too 'young' to recall the difference between the sounds of two and three cylinder engines!

IIRC, this particular quote came the above publication.
The exhaust beat was described as, this ain’t Ka toom ba.
Suppose it was more of an abstract guessing compilation but I thought it go off fast.
Next.

More onomatopoeic than a traditional cryptic clue.
