Is that destination board of "Wellsworth" actually on the train, or has someone Photoshopped that on?

No, that was very crudely photoshopped on (if you look up Wellsworth station on Wikipedia, you'll see why this train won't be going there) and you haven't entered this quiz yet.

The station is (or rather, was) Broad Street, now home to the Broadgate shopping centre.

The use of Wellsworth station (and the picture title of Ffarquhar) were tenuous clues, and I'll give a chocolate bar to anyone who can tell me the link.

Those waiting for a train. A train that will take them far away. They know where they hope this train will take them, but they don't know for sure:
garion24wales (Liverpool Street)
The Raven (Liverpool Street)
krollo (Richmond)

*RichieG raised the point that he thought that stations had to be on the current London Underground map. To reiterate - they have to have appeared on a London Underground map at some point.

Yeah, see that big NatWest Tower/Tower 42 in the background? Kind of gives it away people ...

Ffarquhar & Wellsworth are both stations on Thomas the Tank Engine's network, is there also a Broad St on the network?

Nope. I'll give a clue later if nobody's guessed by then, but by doing so will invalidate the chocolate bar prize.
