But it has been changed, is it really worth the millions to re-badge the station, timetables and all the rest that goes with it just for the sake of nostalgia.
It's not about the nostalgia, it's about being seen doing something... anything really! Relative to the cost it would be a great publicity stunt from an otherwise moribund government.
Napthine has a big task ahead of him, he has to turn around a cynical public in eighteen months or so. They wasted a lot of time and public favour with Baillieu, now they've got to try and turn it around so they're not remembered as one-term screw-ups. There's no additional money, revenues from nearly all sources are shrinking and they seem incapable or reluctant to raise more. They really don't have much to offer between now and election time except maybe a 9 billion dollar toll-way that will probably be uneconomical and hard to finance. And Julia Gillard will be long-forgotten by the time we have a state election so they won't be able to rely on the unpopularity of the Labor brand any more.
Something trivial and relatively cheap like changing the name of Southern Cross back to its original "Spencer Street" is just the kind of stunt they're probably looking for.
