Where am I? UK Stations, new version #2

Post by The Orange One » 21 Oct 2015, 13:38

Since the last thread didn't seem to be Woking properly, here's a new one.

I am at a station in the UK, and trains currently operate from this station. This station can be anything on this map that isn't the unconnected end of an airport bus link or ferry (so not Aberdeen Airport, Liverpool Docks etc., but Gatwick Airport and Fishguard Harbour are fine - use your common sense for this), so National Rail, LU, DLR, Croydon Tramlink, Metrolink, T&W Metro, Glasgow Subway, Edinburgh Trams, Nottingham Express Transit, Blackpool Tramway, Midland Metro, Sheffield Supertram and any other metro system you happen to find on there.

You have 20 questions (although I'm quite happy to extend if this isn't enough). Go!

Has the station, at any time in its history, been part of BR?

People who haven't seen the first thread might think that 'Woking' is a mistake in the opening post. Anyway, is the station served by multiple TOCs (Heathrow Connect, Express and Gatwick Express etc. all seperate)

Could the station be considered a 'junction' (trains can go two ways when leaving a station according to the map or are like Shotton (trains never running on same tracks)?

Is the Network Railcard valid at your station?
