I don't know the loco, much to my shame, but on the right there are Welsh colours, which means with the built up nature of the area, means this can only be Aberyst-watch :)

The platform pic is taken from has a departure board which suggests it only gets services which terminate at Nottingham, which suggests it's either the Skegness or Worskop lines. Knowing the Worksop line is generally more newly built stations, that would suggest the Skegness line.

Having looked at stations on the Skegness line, it appears to resemble Heckington the most, so... Heckington?

Correct! I made the mistake of thinking the display board was too far in the distance to read!

It isn't, no. Lacking a few wires for remodelled Bolton!

Fair point!!! The bridge in the background threw me.

Obviously a significant building on the left there but I'll refrain from another guess til someone else has had a go.
