    It is what it is. Describe the station your thinking of, but you must include:

    1) The route your station is on: eg, Great Northern, Thameslink....
    2) The number of platforms: eg, 1, 2, 3, 4.......
    3) (optional) any other info that might help

    If you guess the station correctly, it's your turn to describe a station.

    I'll start:

    1) It's on the Great Northern Route
    2) There are four platforms
    3) There was a big train crash there (they had the enquiry quite recently)

    I think that's a very easy one to start with!

    Nope. Can we scrap the third clue thing (i.e. Newcastle)? It makes it too easy.

    It does make sense to scrap that. It does make it easy.

    Maybe if you just allow people to make a clue that doesn't need to fit any criteria?

    I mean I'm sure people would provide enough and not post

    My other thought was Manors.

    Sure Manors became unstaffed in the late 70s, when the Metro first arrived. My guess is Morpeth (although it is partially staffed now).

    Let's try with the new style format:
    1) South Wales Mainline
    2) Two platforms
    3) There is no Welsh name for this station (despite being in Wales)

    4 platforms upstairs, 2 down.

    If so, then open floor.

    Yep. Platforms are 0, 1, 2, 3, 3a (a west facing bay) and 4. Swimming baths are visible coming into Platform 0, 1 or 2 on the left.

    Next..

    Five platforms, all of which at least can have services to/from Liverpool Street
    The last few letters in its name are very common on this route!

    6 platforms IIRC.

    The only one I can think of with 5 is Shenfield

    Colchester: Nay. It doesn't fit the "clue", and has one platform too many.

    Shenfield: Nay. Also doesn't fit the "clue". It does have five platforms though.
