It wasn't. Neither was the only other station on the line.

Yes - I think I have it. It's where blue birds came out of during World War II. We could be into some dreadful puns here!

Care to actually name the place then grahame? Just deciphered your cryptic answer above. 😜

I'll have a proper railway locations quiz up tomorrow or Saturday. I've been busy cataloguing my digital imagery (around 6000 photos) and have found a few railway good 'uns. Brought back memories of railway locations that' I'd forgotten I'd even visited!

Lynmouth

Correct! Nearby station being, of course, the bottom station of the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Opened Easter 1890.

Close(ish) - think of somewhere currently newsworthy along the extended route of avocet line trains.

After due consideration with my sibling, the Walker Brothers suggest the Dawlish environs.

I resisted the wild card of Severn/Severed Beach earlier due the colour of the sea.
