Nope, Derby's East Mids I think...past Yorkshire anyway.....the station is somewhere in the North East, thats as big as a clue as you guys are getting....
FYI, the North East streches from Berwick to Darlington, and from Saltburn to Haltwhistle...

And now i've said too much :-)

Well I would assume that the Voyager is stopping, but it only stops at the four stations I've mentioned? Or is it actually passing through?

Virgin doesnt stop at Manors..and if it was just passing through it'd use the through lines.

may i make a humble suggestion

make this stations for all countries

however only major stations/unique stations (like bristol parkway)


(i could post a station down here in cornwall, or one up in scotland and it would take you ages to guess it....)

Nothing with passengers stops at Manors - it's a mainline depot, not a station. Unless you count the Metro station, of course, which is (a) not on the mainline and (b) underground.

Well guys, Martin is right, it is Manors station.

Virgin Trains don't stop there, but they go relatively slow on the approach to Newcastle Central, hence why it looks like it's stopped.

Manors used to be a HUGE station, but now it's just a island platform station with the odd commuter train stopping.

The Metro station is a 5 mins walk away, in the business park to the left of the picture

Next please!

I think I'd better give you a big clue...it's a terminus.
