Oh may I have a turn now?

Clue 1 - I have 5 bay platforms

Clue 2 - Platform 1 is mostly open air and is also extremely long

Clue 3 - The squark of a seagull may be a familiar sound

Clue 4 - There used to be a station halt just outside of me where trains would reverse back onto another line heading northwards

Where am I? (More clues to come if you need them)

EDIT: Sorry I have realised that I seem to have stolen the turn of theblackwatch. Hope you don't mind!

Is it Preston???
I suppose it must be, as the 'DalesRail' service does the rare Hellifield-Chitheroe section on Summer Sundays so you can get directly from there to the S&C on occasion!

But you can go 5 ways out of Preston: North (WCML), West (Blackpool), East (Blackburn), South (WCML) and SouthWest (Ormskirk).

I've now been told it is not Preston - so I asked if an error had been made (as I severely doubt anywhere else would have fitted the description), and indeed it has. The station concerned only has 5 platforms. I cannot enter though as I now know the answer!

Yay! Ok, here goes!

Clue 1: I sleep now, but once I was busy.

Clue 2: When built I had all the amenities a passenger could require, including numerous waiting rooms, refreshment rooms, and even a ladies only tea room.

Clue 3:
I had twelve platforms. Four of them were through platforms, and the remainder were bay platforms.

Clue 4: My canopy had but three spans.

Clue 5:
I needed four signalboxes to control me, but only two of them to keep me working.

Clue 6: Trains to Derby, Skegness, Crewe, Newcastle, Bournemouth, York, London and Manchester, amongst other destinations, came through my platforms.

Clue 1: You can go 4 ways from me, but only 3 ways have direct regular passenger services.

Clue 2: Most trains don't stop here.

Clue 3: I have 3 platforms, at all 3 tracks, although there used to be 4 tracks.

Clue 4: One of my platforms is relatively new and is some distance from the others.

Clue 5: Trains overtake here, but only in one direction. A completely different arrangement for overtaking exists in the other direction.

Good luck!

Indeed, I'd have said Mirfield - you've got the main L&Y main line heading east towards Wakefield (Kirkgate) and west towards Hebden Bridge and the north west (that's your 'rare' passenger line). Going west, the Huddersfield line branches off to the left at Heaton Lodge, and to the east your line to Leeds via Dewsbury branches off at Thornhill LNW Jn. (though nowadays it's the 'main' line from that junction).

Aaaand, thinking about it (hence the edit!) - I suppose the 'overtaking arrangement' in the opposite direction is the reason Dewsbury's still got a loop on the down but not the up?

Yes it is Mirfield.

I knew TomNick would get it ;), but looks like you just pipped him to it Morgan! Well done, your go.

Indeed. Is this stretch of track (Leeds-Hudds) unique in the way that overtaking is done so differently in one direction compared to the other, I wonder...

Right,ermm

CLUE 1. This station has 2 platforms.

CLUE 2. This station has a level crossing out side of it ( north bound )

CLUE 3.
Trains always stop here apart from the odd early morning commuter express to london.

CLUE 4. The main line semifast go to london liverpool street.

CLUE 5. The level crossing bariers go down 4min and 21 seconds befor a train comes into sight ( not like that helps )

More clues to come if needed

enjoy
