    I recognise it but can't think from where! Barnes?

    Afraid not. Despite being an SWR station, Henley is still the closest guess so far....

    Not there. Andover is now the closest.

    Not there as already posted a pic of Tisbury from this trip....

    ....so it is Sherborne! I wondered if the pics on the platform would have helped solve it?

    Thanks! Although they are indeed very nice pictures, they do seem very generic and commonplace in many towns, so they probably wouldn't (for me, at least) have helped solve it. The clues given were definitely the greatest aid to me, however. :)

    Now, where's this somewhat bleak station?

    Good luck!

    That looks like Ravensthrorpe (before its most recent "works")

    Yep! Got it in one, well done! :)
    A couple of seconds too late, I'm afraid! :(

    Dang! Fairly familar as I pass that one semi-regularly. For the record, its most recent works haven't made it any better :lol:

    Due to lack of uptake, the first clue is that this is not a Northern station

    That's not a very helpful clue.

    The photo is just the corner of a platform and some straight track eventually curving to the left.
    Unless you've stood in that exact spot, you aren't going to recognise it.

    To echo @OxtedL : The reason that there hasn't been much uptake is because there's nothing really to go on. There'll be a good few hundred stations that this could be.

    It was thoughtfully cropped for a reason and to be fair we’ve had far worse! Here is a less cropped one

    Thanks, had me puzzled for a bit as assumed it was staggered platforms...

    Anyway, have a look at this..
