It was later renamed Bontherambo, Naringa, becoming Springhurst in October 1890.[2]

Disused station Bowser is located between Springhurst and Wangaratta.

The station handled heavy traffic from the Wahgunyah district until the opening of the Wahgunyah branch line in 1879. A weatherboard station building was erected in 1878, beside a through track goods shed already there. Track layout alterations were made in 1885, 1899, 1906 and 1919.[2]

A signal cabin was provided in 1887, but was moved into the station in 1899, along with the platform being extended to 110 metres. The present brick station building dates to 1950. The standard gauge line and road underpass were built in 1962.[2]

The original platform was located on the broad gauge. In 2011 this line was converted to standard gauge and another platform built on the existing 1962 built standard gauge line.
