Unfortunately the winner of the last one seems to have gone AWOL. So i'll fill in, as this thread has been quiet for two whole month!

Where are we now?

Been away from this forum for ages, but I think I recognise the latest mystery station...

Kiveton Bridge, the birthplace of legendary football manager Herbert Chapman!
The Penistone Line Partnership:http://www.penline.co.uk/
Formerly known as 47434
Last train journey I could be bothered to look up the headcode for: 04/02/2016, Mirfield to Batley, 2J34 1459 Huddersfield to Leeds, Northern Rail 144015

It certainly is. Took a while to get this one guessed. I'm quite proud of that, will take a while for me to come up with one that takes that long to solve again...

At first I thought it was Wombwell, but it didn't look right... definitely a hint of South Yorkshire in there!

How about this one? Shouldn't be too taxing...

That looks very much like Hebden Bridge.

Was the first time I'd ever noticed a ZZ car stop board at a station.
