Silly Railway Station Names

As all good Adelaide folk know, there is something a little bit cool and a little bit special about the Seaford Railway line. It is the only line on the Adelaide suburban rail network to have electric trains and modern railcars (thanks Tony Abbott for cutting off funding to the project when the Gawler Central line was only half done--I'm sure this played a part in the fact that you are no longer Prime Minister,) and you never have to put up with being crammed in like a sardine on one of those tiny 3000 class railcars that (lets face it,) never really were a suitable replacement for the iconic Red Hen railcars. Anyway, I was travelling on the Seaford Railway line recently, I got a little bored and my mind started to wander. Then I started coming up with stupid alternative names for all of the stations. And they were all so dumb and unfunny that, naturally, I decided to share them here ...
