    The idea of the game is to guess the station by the picture posted by a user...

    The Rules

    • You may only post a picture of a station if you guess the station before correctly or if somebody passes their turn on.
    • The photo must have been taken in England, Scotland or Wales.
    • The photo must contain a train which operates/operated on the Network Rail area unless the easement in rule 4 applies. (so excludes any Light Rail, LUL & Preserved Railways)
    • EASEMENT TO RULE 3 -- However if the station has an Interchange with a NR station, this is allowed.
    • The actual name of the station must not be in the photo or filename - destination blinds should be covered.
    Rule Amendment - See Below.
    Rule Amendment - See Below. April 2011
    IF YOU THINK ANY PHOTO BREACHES ANY OF THESE RULES - THIS SHOULD BE POSTED IN THREAD AND THIS SHALL BE LOOKED AT BY EITHER A MEMBER OF FORUM STAFF (if they are happy to do so) OR ME (as the OP) ;). THE NEXT PICTURE WILL THEN BE FREE FOR ANYONE TO POST.


    Copyright rules obviously apply and if the photo is not yours and you have found it on the web then please attribute the author.

    Happy Guessing ;)
    This game has been played on other forums, rules interpreted from TT-Forums version

    EDIT for the newbies who join and look at the first page:

    (The below is a quote from past #6683 :)
    EDIT and amendment to the rules 25th July 2011:

    The photos have to be reasonable, don't go posting a photo of a dug out platform in a place where not even the railway exists anymore.

    Okay, good idea for a game, so let us think about this.

    East Coast and First Scotrail would lead to Scotland so I will guess that it isn't either Glasgow or Edinburgh but will say Dundee

    In that picture of Haymarket, is that guy on the platform actually masturbating through his pockets at the sight of a 158???

    I know things are pretty desperate on the railways traction-wise these days, but that's going a little too far!

    Since the floor's open, I'll add one. Probably quite easy but I don't have too many digital photos except ones in Northern Ireland that have been forbidden by the OP :(

    Strood, seen as you can't get from the back platform to the right to the liner (to Rochester) from which the train is coming from, only the line straight ahead (to Maidstone West). the bridge in the background carries the line from Rochester-Swanley via Meopham I believe.

    I don't even know how to post a photograph, and i'm on my mobile anyway, so someone else fire away! I don't know 90019, it wouldn't have been that obvious to everyone!

    If I'm right you'll need to wait until tonight for the next picture I'm afraid.

    That is correct. Should have cropped it a bit more.
