3. JontyMort - Dublin.  More specific - Stuving - Saggart, October


4. Stuving - September,  New York Subway


5. May,   Reading,         Ellendune - Community Rail in the City

The following are correct ...

1   ****    Westbury      Clan Line - Westbury, but no month yet given
4   September   *****   Stuving - September, (but no location given)
5   May   Reading         Ellendune - Community Rail in the City
12   August   *****      Western Pathfinder - August (but not Warminster)

I have given myself a real challenge in correlating all the answers here.  Three of the months already identified (that's the main quiz), two bonuses of places already!

I would guess that No. 6 is Yarmouth (Old) station on the Isle of Wight.

Had to checkhttp://www.geograph.org.uk/browser/#!/q=Yarmouth+Isle+of+Wight/page=4/image=5953879 because it looks slightly different when you cycle by and your nose is about platform height.
