The answers so far...



There isn't a prize but we hope you enjoy the challenge!  (We still have a few left so if you haven't had one already do ask us - you might be 'lucky'!)



January 2023:  It's Goring & Streatley station, platform 1, when services on the 'relief' line were disrupted.  This Bristol bound 'IET' (Intercity Express Train) made an additional stop at Goring to get commuters home from London and Reading,


February 2023:  It's the Isle of Wight, looking towards Freshwater Bay and The Needles, as seen from the top of the 'Island Coaster' double decker.


March 2023:  It's the 3 mile long Woodhead Tunnel on Britain's first electrified main line between Manchester and Sheffield.  Closed to passengers in January 1970, and to freight services in July 1981, this route would have been ideal for a 'Northern Powerhouse' link between the two cities.  Sadly the only electricity now passing through the tunnel, which was opened as recently as 1953, are National Grid electricity cables!
