Not many places with wires in Wales! Let's see if you multi-line roving types can get this one.

Where are we now?

You've done a good job of hiding any clues... I think I see a Northern logo on that timetable poster...

The annoying thing is, I recognise it. I just don't know where it is. Given I recognise it, its probably on a line near me or one i go through commonly...

Bolton Upon Dearne? I know it has quite a bit of tarmaced area outside it

Nope...a clue would be that it is Northern, but it's not in Yorkshire.

Brigg must be the only station where the forecourt seems to have been sold off for horse grazing!

For the new one, I have no idea but looks northern. I'll take a guess at Burnley Manchester Road.

given the station gets used less than 2k times per year, might as well. No weekday service, only saturday trains!

Spent a fair few times standing on the platform there, looking in that direction, so gotten to know it pretty well!
