This is easy.
It has two stations across one road and no level crossing. Both stations have diesel trains. It is on the coast and in East Anglia. It has among other shops a Starlings Toymaster. One station was threatened by supermarket development. One line is associated with a Plant the other a Bird. They're in bold for a reason, what is this?
Happy guessing

Correct. Harder this one. It is an extract from a description of a linewith names and other pinpointers shown by ##. Enjoy.
There are three stations on the line, Beginning in the market town of ####### the line passes into #####, through the villages of ##### and ####### and ##### #####, the line then meets the mainline in a small ##### village just south of ########## known as ##### ###.

#######

A Market Town in South #######. ####### dates back to the age of the Saxons, although is most famously known as the birth place of painter Thomas ############.
For many centuries the town had a thriving Silk and Fabric Trade, and today still has a large industrial area, along with many retail outlets, and traditional market which visits twice a week.
####### station is located in the town and is only a short walk away from the main shopping area, bus connections to one of the many villages can be made by walking towards Station Road then following the signs into the bus station.

#####

##### is made up of three different parishes: ##### St Mary, ##### Hamlet and Mount #####, and is classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
##### was once a busy industrial place however is now mostly residential with a few local business providing local services.
The village centres of both ##### Hamlet and ##### St Mary are a short walk from the station where there are many historic sites to explore.
More information about ##### can be found at the ##### Online website.

####### and ##### #####
Once a busy junction between the ##### and ##### Valley Railways, ####### Station is adjacent to the 32-arch viaduct which takes the line high over the River ##### and the ##### Valley.
The station and all its buildings remain in tact and is now the home of the #### ####### Railway Museum which has a range of preserved steam and diesel trains as well as a comprehensive collection of historic railway items.
The village of ####### is a short walk from the station and include the ####### Millennium Fields where you can get a full view of the viaduct.
Tell me what line it is what the four stations are and where this extract comes from (URL). I suggest working out the line and searching for it in Google. Happy Guessing

Here it is, what route and what two stations that are part of the route?
Place1 To Place2
The modern town of Place1 emerged in the 1960's. Rooftop horizons mimic riverside wharves, sail lofts and farm cottages.

Place3 Country Park purchased by Organisation1 in 1973, is mainly surrounded by the tidal estuary of the River1. A management agreement protects the grazing marsh and maintains traditional farming methods. Place3 officially opened in 1984, is a working farm where children can get close to farm animals and play safely in adventure play areas. There is also a Country Park, which boasts some excellent coastal walks. The Farm includes a Visitor Centre, gift shop and an indoor lunch area. Details of special events can be found in the Place3 events leaflet or from their Web site, www.Place3countrypark.co.uk A taxi service from Place1 railway station to Place3 is available at a charge.

Near Place2 the river comes up right up to the line, offering a good view of saltmarsh. In the head waters of Creek1, can be seen remains of the old wooden sailing barge CERF. The old cattle dock at Siding1 is still visible in the triangle of a garden by the station style cottages. It was built by the Railway Company for farm workers as compensation for building the railway line over the farmer's land. By the line is the Old Rectory built in 1830's and later extended using money from land sold to the Railway Company. A short walk from the station visit the quaint Place4 Inn for a quiet drink or meal.
Name the following:
Place1
Place2
Place3
Place4
River1
Organisation1
Siding1
Creek1.
Happy guessing.

The modern town of South Woodham Ferrers emerged in the 1960's. Rooftop horizons mimic riverside wharves, sail lofts and farm cottages.

Marsh Farm Country Park purchased by Essex County Council (ECC) in 1973, is mainly surrounded by the tidal estuary of the River Crouch. A management agreement protects the grazing marsh and maintains traditional farming methods. Marsh Farm officially opened in 1984, is a working farm where children can get close to farm animals and play safely in adventure play areas. There is also a Country Park, which boasts some excellent coastal walks. The Farm includes a Visitor Centre, gift shop and an indoor lunch area. Details of special events can be found in the Marsh farm events leaflet or from their Web site, www.marshfarmcountrypark.co.uk A taxi service from Woodham railway station to Marsh Farm is available at a charge.
