    Well, the station is in Wales but neither of the two suggested so far. Looking for a potential anagram might be a way forward!

    I'm sorry for keeping you waiting. I shouldn't have posted a riddle knowing that I wouldn't have internet access for the next three days.
    Tipton is correct. Your turn Karl.
    Also a clever suggestion, but not what I had in mind.

    Hint: this is one of two separate terminal stations on different lines, serving the same town, both open today in passenger service. "Same name, different suffix" -- fictional model: Crumpleton General, and Crumpleton Victoria Road.

    Correct -- anagram of the bit in inverted commas.

    Verily, brother, the floor is thine.

    Thanks, Calthrop. A quickie to follow: Masculine value.

    Modern edgy versifier seeks to replace in poetic canon -- with more modern-relevant material -- outdated 17th-century geezer with his stuff about the Fall of Man, and all that.
