The Null Device
Melbourne's Spencer Street railway station, the city's main hub for rural and
interstate trains, will be renamed to Southern Cross Station
. Not quite as craven as renaming Museum to Melbourne Central (which is misleading, as it is not a central rail interchange, but was renamed as such because the owners of the Melbourne Central shopping centre bribed the government to do so), but still with a whiff of branding. Oh well; at least it's not "SouthernCross" or "Southcross(tm)" or some made-up word ending in "-nt".
Though I believe that when the station was originally built, in the 19th
century, it was simply known as Melbourne. Perhaps reverting to its original
name would have been more appropriate.
