Wild guess for 3.

Bath Bus Station?

Yes, exactly ...

Wikipedia tells me.
Quote
The new Bath Bus Station opened on Sunday 7 June 2009, at a cost of 14 million

The pigeon ingress is utterly frustrating.  In recent months the destination boards above the bays have been fixed and the birds can now only congregate of the emergency roof access ladder, so the problem is now concentrated in this area ... and is utterly frustrating to get fixed between the major bus operator, landlord and contract cleaning crew.

I think I mentioned elsewhere that certain parts of the 'new' Reading are looking the same.....  Tongue

That clock looks like DART green to me, so somewhere in the Dublin area? Although wasn't aware that DART has 10 car trains.
