    No -- geographically far-removed from there.

    The "Irish connection" is just to let me have one word of the clue. The "answer station" is on Great Britain's national network -- as above, a long way from Scotland.

    Further hint: it's an anagram -- 18 letters.

    Wembley Stadium?
    (If not, has the station got to do with a nearby sporting grounds?)

    Not Wembley Stadium -- nothing to do with sport in any way or shape.

    After poring over a map I think I have it:

    Pevensey and Westham

    Right -- anagram of "Mathew: 'Nay !' v. pee'd-ness".

    It's your pledge to invite people to sign...

    Description possibly heard from loco crew, of poor-quality coal which has hampered getting their train to this station. (All fuel must be brought into these parts by water, anyway.)

    Afraid not. A bit of a tendency has been observable lately for people to come up in answer, with Scottish stations; when the correct one is a very long way south of Scotland. That applies to this question.

    No. Location: a southerly Channel -- but not St. George's.

    A wonderful variety of names suggested so far; but not the right one. Hint: it's on a heritage line.

    Correct ! -- as in, "this coal is ashy".

    Your floor.

    I have one, again not on the national rail network:

    Had team guides sat around here to watch the sports?

    Well done John, Gateshead Stadium it is. (Anagram of first four words). Your turn.
