Ride quality looks similar to a Pacer, although it was probably quieter inside !

Not only is the headline and story Evesham, but the picture is actually labelled "Evesham train station(Credit: BTP (British Transport Police))"!  Amazing how inaccurate police reporting can be!  Looks like Basingstoke to me; I think I recognise the damage to the valance which I carefully photoshopped out to make a difference in one of the Christmas quizzes!

Well BTP (British Transport Police) are the organisation that famously used a photo of a TPWS (Train Protection and Warning System) grid to represent a shopping trolley...  Grin

*That* breaks the forum rules - it’s not Taunton or Melksham!
