Can't pinpoint it exactly, but I'm guessing it's somewhere on the West Coastway or its branches? I photted the same unit some years ago at Bognor Regis. Nice retro livery.

A lot of the stations along that line will have views much like that. The one I usually travel to is Shoreham-by-Sea, and I'm sure the view down the line looking eastwards from there is just like that, so that would be my guess.

It is the Eastbound platform at Emsworth. I had travelled from Pershore via Guildford.
The return was via Fratton and Basingstoke.
I reserved a seat on The 17:49 Cross Country service from Basingstoke to Oxford. But it was a waste of time. Most of the coach was empty but someone was sat in the seat next to my reserved seat so I sat elseware.
