For the new page:
This station is/was equipped with items involved with safeworking which are, while not unique, exceedingly rare in regional Victoria.
The station in question also had/has another item of safeworking which was also once relatively rare, but which expanded its spread over time (unlike the previously [not] mentioned item of safeworking.
No level crossings are involved.
The station in question has never had a signal box.
There were (at least in the 1960s) special instructions in the WTT for working trains through this station.
Not only was there not a signal box, but there was no lever frame, double-wire or otherwise
The station was not a junction.
The equipment installed at this station was common in the city, but only 4 locations in the bush were so fitted (5 depending on where boundary is drawn)
The safeworking equipment is related to signalling
Although the station is closed, there is a block point of the same name on the open branch line.
One of Bowser, Mysia, Arnold is within 25km of the station we seek

Incorrect guesses: Kyneton, Ballarat, Red Cliffs, Rushworth,  Beech Forest, Kerang, Bowser, Mysia, Arnold

Barraport - 3 position Semaphore and Automatic operation of the electric staff.
Dave C
Hooray!  Mysia was the same. 3 position semaphores were only installed outside the metro area at Castlemaine (Maldon Junction), Mysia, Barraport, and I think to control the single line bridge over the Goulburn River at Dysart. Also Ferntree Gully to Belgrave. There were special instructions in the WTT regarding the use of the automatic electric staff.
