Well, it's in Wales.

It appears to be on a double track line (or maybe single track with a passing place).

And I think I've managed to rule out most places west of Cardiff....

Ah, sorry. I haven't had any issues with it. Are you able to try another device?

It's a bit tricky. But I'll give you the option of a hint if you want it. In which case, click the link.

I took the photo whilst I was doing this: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3238

If you don't want the hint, then don't click the link! :D

...and here it is:

Supposing, hypothetically, you were visiting relatives in Saundersfoot. One day, you decided to head down to the beach with the family pet crow, and release it.

The crow would have to fly at least 59 miles before it reached my mystery station.

Just guess every station in Wales that's over 59 miles from Saundersfoot, and eventually you'll bring this torturous quiz to an end :)

And that answer was correct! Well done.

I will keep it open for another couple of days, in case anyone else wants to guess. I'm particularly keen to hear from anyone who visits Saundersfoot beach...

Afterwards I have a few more in the pipeline, if folks are interested. Hopefully they will be slightly less tortuous, and potentially more interesting and educational. (That should keep the site moderators happy! :D )

I have visited Saundersfoot beach on numerous occasions as I really do have relatives down that way! (Though I haven't been down there for over a year for obvious reasons).

Until the 1930s a railway line ran along the back of the beach.

Though I'm intrigued as to why you chose it to be the datum point!
