Stourbridge Junction?  Reminds me of the little service shed for the Parry People Mover, Class 139s.

That was also my immediate first thought. Pretty sure I've got a photo of the same shed somewhere.

I thought it was the entrance to a Secret BunkerTM of HST125s to serve the post-apocalyptic railway community.  Grin

Are there any other pictures of a passenger with the same number of wheels as the train?

This forum clearly has inspirational power. I've decided to take a look at the Stourbridge PPM myself and also break the travel at Droitwich Spa for a little nose around there. If I split my journey Temple Meads to Worcester Shrub Hill, then Shrub Hill to Stourbridge Town, it's just over 15 quid (with my card) using cheap day returns. Add the Redland to Temple Meads bit for less than two quid and that's still under 17 pounds of your earth money for a day out.
Anybody know much about Droitwich?

It is rather salty. It has a Spa (and a Spar).

I think that's about it.
