Great, so that's a Class 450. I'm pretty sure that's Liss, but I'm having a go on Hilsea.

Not really a 450... and not either of those stations.

It's a 458 which suggests the Windsor/Reading/Weybridge via Chertsey lines, but a photo of one in an unusual place would be a good trick...

I'm going to stick with their regular stomping ground though, and have an educated guess at Bracknell because the fence matches.

I'd say Feltham judging by the fences...

Could it be one of the curved approaches to Virginia Water?

Incredibly you see that as much more urban than Church Fenton.

Yes, I was hoping the scenery on the south side of the station would throw people off more than it seemingly did!

I was racking my brain for 5 track stations in Leftie's area before I remembered Church Fenton had a through road.

Lets give this one a go then!
