And I find myself guessing (carefully chosen wording as I don't know the place!) at Churston.

It appears to have very two very substantial platforms so somewhere on the withered arm, i.e the ex LSWR branches in North Devon.

Okehampton? That would account for the unit.

Oh.  Thanks, relex109 - but I'm giving devon_metro the benefit of the doubt, here: he lives in south Devon, so he knows it's not on his local preserved line.  Wink

As I was just about to post:

No, sorry, grahame - I've discounted the Paignton - Kingswear line, if only because Liam would have shouted 'house!' by now, if it was anywhere on that line!  Grin

Liam - by the way - do you have a clue?  (In exchange for a National Rail Travel Voucher, perhaps?)
