The boat could also be a red herring :P It isn't Duncraig either way.

Luckily I didn't repeat my previous error and type Lelant Saltings!

Where now?

A Sneaky Marsden can be read in the window of the train, so I'll let you have another go!

I take it this was one of the days when TPE were terminating there as the main route was closed and the majority were diverted via Hebden?

For such a schoolboy error, I don't deserve another go... serves me right for posting so late and while a little bit tipsy!
Over to you...

It was indeed when the Calder diversions were in place earlier this year. Strangely, the platform extensions go beyond the signal which allows turnbacks in that platform, which meant on the return journey everyone had to board via a single door.

That curve and those houses in the background look familiar.

Slaithwaite maybe?

Never been to that area, but I can at least make a guess...
Hadfield?
