Here is a puzzle for you and guess where I start and end using the clues on my route:

I start my journey at a stop only capable of 3 car sets and now has a reduced service to just two a day.
I reach my interchange station which is the county town and head up on a TPX 158. I then get off at a Parkway station, some distance from where Concorde was grounded at on its very last flight. I get on a MML HST with some differrent posters inside and get off at the station with a thriving shopping centre above and a city with a long tram line.
Its then a 150 to where the citys tramlink joins again. I get off here and travel on a VT 220 onwards to a big city which hosts alot of EMUs/DMUs. I then take a Silverlink 321 to a place of a biggish railway works.

Where do I end?

I think that's Trowbridge, Bristol isnt the county town/city of Anywhere, and Trowbridge is of Wiltshire

I think you go to Leeds, then end up at Doncaster (the Silverlink 321 being on Hire to Northern)

YEY JsT has it right! It started at Melksham and ended at Donny, However the paths all seem to be wrong! the clues on the routes take you to this journey:

I start my journey at a stop only capable of 3 car sets and now has a reduced service to just two a day - MELSKHAM

I reach my interchange station which is the county town - Trowbridge and head up on a TPX 158 (With FGW)

I then get off at a Parkway station, some distance from where Concorde was grounded at on its very last flight - Bristol Parkway

I get on a MML HST (With VT) with some differrent posters inside and get off at the station with a thriving shopping centre above and a city with a long tram line - BNS

Its then a 150 to where the citys tramlink joins again - Wolves

I get off here and travel on a VT 220 onwards to a big city which hosts alot of EMUs/DMUs - Leeds
