Where is this? BBC Weather App pic.


Recommended Posts

The trailers on TV for the BBC Weather App show a glimpse of station/line in the rain.  It's somewhere that's been singled in the past but I don't recognise it.  My first reaction was somewhere on the Conwy Valley Line but I don't think it's there, so where is it?

Ornate footbridge supports, road bridge right next to it, possible AWS ramp in the distance for a yellow signal just visible by the RH side of the arch. Current style of "don't cross the line" sign...

I can also see that the 'ornate footbridge support' is a sort of weathered brown, 

there are lots of bushes/shrubs, and it's raining.

But none of those obvious statements helps answer the OP's question!

The footbridge appears to have faded chocolate and cream colouring, so probably GW, or somewhere BR(W) had responsibility for. The bridge behind appears to cross at an oblique angle. States the obvious, but should narrow down the possibilities a bit. I was wondering if it might be on the singled withered arm somewhere.

Rye to Ore possibly? single track with double track width.

 

 

It's not Rye to Ore. My 'local line' and none of the stations has a footbridge like that, in fact Three Oaks, Doleham, and Winchelsea don't have a footbridge of any sort.

It seems that the trailers for Weather watchers are often regional - so with the OP showing a location of Llandysul I would suggest starting in Wales. The faded colours of the footbridge would suggest either LMS or GWR both of which would also match a Welsh location.

As would the rain!

 

Nah, it looks too cheerful to be Wales...

 

It certainly looks like North Wales drizzle.

somewhere on the Matlock branch.

 

The Matlock line is worked as a single train in section, so no signals apart from at Ambergate by the junction to allow the train/unit back onto the mainline. Very surprised no one has identified the location yet.

There's another rail-related picture they've been using in the last few days - a frosty scene with a viaduct in the background - could be the Ouse Valley aka Balcombe p'raps ?

 

I thought I could just about make out supports for OHLE?  POSS a short section of Digswell viaduct (Welwyn)?
