Lalor railway station is located on the South Morang line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Lalor opening as Rail Motor Stopping Place 77 in October 1949, being renamed Lalor on 27 August 1952.[1]

It was served by the Thomastown to Whittlesea AEC railmotor shuttle.[2] In November 1959 the line from Reservoir was electrified, with the line northward closed.[1][3] In November 1964 it was reopened and electrified as far as Epping.[4]

Lalor station, like the suburb in which it is located, was originally pronounced (locally [ˈloːlə]), as it was named after Peter Lalor, and although some people still pronounce it as such, in recent times the pronunciation or (locally [ˈlæɪloː, -lə]) has become predominant.

In addition, the Victorian Railways Newsletter of 1973 and Victorian RailWays of 1974—Victorian Railways in-house newsletters—stated that the correct pronunciation was (locally [ˈloːlə]).[5]
