One image for every day of this month!  Nearly all in GWR (Great Western Railway) land.  Just one guess each please for the first 24 hours (yes, you can have another go if you get one wrong!)

Please also look through and post up how many you think you know.  We were having some loading issues with the server during this week ... a lot better now, I think, but you can help me by posting / throwing lots of traffic this way. 

All images taken by myself in the last year or so.   Most before social distancing - please wear a face mask, keep your distance, wash hands, buy tickets contactless, choose quiet trains if you're out and about at present.

Well if we are naming them - purely to stress the server - and obeying the traditional rules (so we know there must be the usual two in there somewhere  Wink ) - No. 19 - Par

3. Penzance.  I reckon I could have had a stab at about half a dozen of them.  I walked down those very steps at Totnes only last Saturday.
