    All railway stations in Great Britain have three letter alpha codes.

    They can be listed on timetables, departure boards, station information services and used on the online journey planners.

    For example, if I was to type LET into the FCC journey planner it would come up with Letchworth Garden City.

    Therefore, the objective of this quiz is to guess the stations code.

    In the words of compare the meerkat, simples.

    The rules are as follows

    1) The code must be from a National Rail station in Great Britain.

    2) When you submit your posting, naming that railway station in the previous posting, also add your next 3-letter station code underneath it (which must be shown in capital letters). If your attempt to solve the previous code is correct, your new 3-letter code will be accepted as the next code to solve.

    3) The code has to be the proper station one as listed by National Rail Enquiries. You can't just make it up as you go along.

    4) You cannot use any website to decipher codes, this is cheating. However, if you are stuck to find a station code to post on your own turn, you may.

    I shall start with a nice easy one.
