Both Jim and Chris have got 5 exactly right so far. Yes, there *are* one of two that are not so easy. All pictures taken personally by myself in the last month, by the way.

Correct on all counts. I'm impressed.  They were spread around a whole lot of lines - where is "the office"?

What an immense feeling of satisfaction, only hampered by the sad realisation that I must have spent far too much time on trains in the course of business and leisure. Indeed, only this morning I enjoyed a two way reversal at Newbury because of a points failure, followed by half an hour taking in the scenery at Theale while the traincrew sorted out a dodgy train door. It's very easy to gain a photographic memory of stations in these circumstances!

The office is in central London, by the way. Better go now, the boss is watching  Wink
