    It's not Tamworth

    Clue: West Midlands Trains do not call at this station

    It's not Runcorn East but this is the closest guess so far.

    As no one has made a guess in a while here is an enlargement to the photo:

    I think this game has lost its way a bit again. I believe it has been mentioned previously (in the pinned post at the start of the thread) that pictures were being made too difficult which stifles the pace of the game. It is guess the station, rather than guess the platform / pillar / brick wall. Just my opinion on making this game great again. Not trying to cause offence :)

    I see your point. It's almost you know it or you don't.

    But some do go amazingly quickly from very little.

    So, I think like has been done here, clues or expanding the picture after a while does work.

    Need more people to guess rather than make really easy ones.

    The rolling stock quiZ.... I mean seriously name a trian to a destination... at least this tests you a little

    Agreed that there should be a balance.

    If it goes quick then so be it. Just how the cookie crumbles. Most of my posts have been unedited apart from something obvious like signs stating the name of a station. If it hasn’t attracted guesses then I’m sure i’ve been prompt enough to provide clues to lead people to the station pictured. Makes it fun for me and the guessers that way. I’ll quit moaning for now. Still no idea where it is sorry...

    I think people should be more prepared to guess and be wrong. At least it narrows it down and gets the clues provided quicker. I have no idea where this one is.

    Looks a bit like central Scotland

    Carfin?

    I said Runcorn east....and was closest so far.

    I doubt Scotland

    The previous guesses were South of Runcorn. It is possible that it's in Scotland, and that you are the closest so far...

    I might be wrong though!

    It's neither of these, and the station is not in Scotland.

    Ramsgreve & Whilpshire?

    (Yes, this is a fairly random guess.)

    I think you need to give us a bit more than a Yes/No if we're struggling this much!

    Is it somewhere on the Borderlands line?

    No it isn't on the Borderlands line, Northern call at this station and not all passenger services which pass through stop here.

    Yay! Thank you. :)

    We got there in the end, haha. I totally forgot that National Rail services call at Heworth!

    Anyhow, here's the next one.

    I appreciate this may be a bit difficult, so I shall expand the image if it is proving to be so after a few guesses.

    Oh, and don't mind the dog. He's just protecting the sign from being visible!

    Good luck! :D

    Sometimes they just "click".

    Here's the next one. Hope it's not too tricky.

    Spean Bridge is correct.
