I'm tickled when I read:  Noisy Taco Root 
(on the Staunch Noises Line)

I think my personal favourites have to be either "Down, Sir!" on the Nervy Forge Line, "Unusual Ass Smoothening" on the Staunch Noises Line or "I, a Virgin" on the Painful Field Screen Line.

Also, Wulkuraka station doesn't seem right (Taut Ulna War Kiosk). Where did the "o" and the extra letters come from?

Finally, I think the station that everyone here can relate to the most (and ironically is the biggest station on the network): "Metro Tears", known by locals as Roma St. Every day, we pray for our train service to show up on time (or at all in some cases), we shed tears over the service we receive and have to put up with. We are unsure when this pain will end and what the future holds for the passenger rail network in SEQ. Metro Tears perfectly sums up the situation we are in right now.

Some of the station names have the word "Station" added because (for example) Zillmere is pretty much unable to be anagram-ed into anything with the faintest meaning.
I have to say though, that Strathpine one is amazing. Especially considering all those unnecessary scribbles you see along rail corridors.
Do I really need to clarify?
