Nice-looking station! Where is it?

Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

One correct answer so far. Just a little nudge, 'cos I'm sure there're one or two more anoraks like me out there... :)

Station Victor - hint

• Name Station Victor.
Bonus: Station shares a binique* feature with just one other station on the National network. What is this feature, and what is the other station?

PMs please!

* If ‘binique’ isn’t a real word, then it should be. It’s like ‘unique’, but applies to two things, rather than just one. At least in my mind that’s what ‘binique’ means…. :roll:
Station Victor begins with a vowel.

Keep the thousands of guesses coming in. I’ll be off-forum from Monday 18th for a few weeks, so I’d like to answer it before I go, then we’ll have a break.

You can enjoy Christmas without sleepless nights due to spending hours working out where nice-looking stations are. (The Whiskey can wait until dry January…)

Station Victor - Answered

Post by RobbieM »

Righto, who’s won Victor? We’ll find out later. But firstly to reveal that Station Victor is Earlestown. One of the oldest stations on the network, of course.

And the binique feature? Well, Earlestown is a Triangular Station, i.e. it has platforms on three sides of a triangular arrangement of railway lines/junctions. And the other station on the network with this feature is Shipley.

Well done to greatkingrat and trains500 – who biniquely are victors for the submitting the correct answers.

Okay, that’s it till 2024 folks! Have a great Christmas. I’m off to Scotty-land to enjoy some whisky. (Not to be confused with Whiskey, which is the station I will launch sometime around mid-January.) 😊

Station Whiskey

I’m back! More nice-looking stations for you to guess! Let’s start 2024 with Station Whiskey – hopefully not too tricky.

• Name Station Whiskey.
• Once you’ve got it, find a city which is written backwards within the station name.

PMs please! 😊

Just giving this one a bit of a re-boot; I think it's got lost under those decaying New Year's Resolutions... :roll:

I know it’s here but very busy and struggling to decipher this one. It’s looked very south west englandy but have pretty much ruled this out
