I recognise that from somewhere but can't quite place it...

Sure this guess is wrong but I'll place it anyway: Castleton Moor.

Okay, as this one seems to have hit a stumbling block, a clue is perhaps required.

61653s previous guess was too far south, maybe try going a bit more far north.

I'm assuming that's a clue, but I still can't place it... so I'll take a stab in the dark and guess at the bustling metropolis of Altnabreac!

It isn't the huge city of Altnabreach, no. You are however, on the right track.

Let's see if we can revitalise this. Given Altnabreach was "on the right track", lets go with Scotscalder a little upwards.

Merry Christmas everyone...

Let's see if we can revive this flagging thread with a guess at Kinbrace.

I'm not very interested in that kind of railway themes, but I still have right to try :D. Is it Invershin by the chance?

Could that be Basingstoke? Probably not, but it's the best I can do...

Sorry for the delay. With everyone on lockdown that's a missed opportunity to revive this game... :oops:

This one isn't great, but under the current situation I can't easily go out and take a fresh one!

At which station is this artwork on display?
