That line was my local and my daily commute for 5 months in 1967. Happy memories

Is the blue surface on the lift shafts a permanent or temporary feature.

I had a go. It appears that I don't know much, at least about the travel habits of the british public, which the quiz is mainly about

If travelling to Kidderminster I would always split ticket at Worcester. Apart from being cheaper, it also avoids having to change stations in Birmingham.

With regard to the Devon Metro scheme, does it involve a new bay off the up platform, for the service to turn back? If so then it might be an idea to look at Chard as a turn back point instead.
Both lines through Axminster are signalled for reversible working so no problem with reversing trains there

I was caught up in this. i arrived at PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains) to catch the 1005 to BPW» (Bristol Parkway - next trains) to find the concourse heaving. nothing happened until a late running 1130 to BRI» (Bristol Temple Meads - next trains) was announced which caused a stampede towards platform 3. A large number were refused access to the platform as the train was already full. Other trains were announced, but nothing for south Wales. I eventually left on the 1330 to BRI, for a connection to BPW, as there was no indication as to when a south Wales service would depart. That train was full and standing to Bath. I eventually arrived 4ΒΌ hours late.

I can't identify the location, although I am sure someone will. The stock is MK2 air conditioned and definitely not HST (High Speed Train) as the seats align with the windows. Probably either a charter service or stock hired in to cover a particular need.
