What station is this - use of photo library images

This is a two part topic:

 

Firstly this page is on the BBC web-site and is a story about the Aslef dispute:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-67436365

 

it uses a Getty image to illustrate but where is the "heavy" rail station shown? Is is even in the UK?

 

EDIT as mentioned below the picture has now been changed to Paddington station and is no longer the Dutch station that appeared this morning.

The second is just to get people to post web sites that have railway themes and use stock images that are not "correct".

A reverse image answers that. Does it particularly need to be British?

Thanks for reminding me of the the reverse image facility and for Phil ( @Harlequin ) for saving me the time to look it up.

 

As to "does it... need to be British?" I consider a story about strikes in the UK should have a picture of a UK station but more generally with the fall in journalistic standards and the use of computers, including AI, in producing content for the web use of inappropriate images seems worthy of a thread as well as ongoing issues over continuity errors and incorrect rolling stock etc on films and on TV.

It's not difficult - for example, Lord True ...

It's Paddington - the wheel-timbered track and the "hazy" 1st generation Heathrow Express EMU's

Someone at the Beeb realised the original picture was not quite right - they've changed it.
