    It is from the late Jim Peden - ref A1531.
    The train seems an important one - it is pulled by a reboilered 'Claughton' and looks quite long so the double track line doesn't seem to be a rural branch! The buildings are wooden and none has a canopy to shelter its passengers, which seems fairly unusual on a main line.
    Does anyone know where it is?

    The train is from Holyhead and is passing through Rhosneigr on Anglesey. Opened 1907 this late date probably accounts for the unusual buildings. The station was about a mile from the village and with little but open country near. It is the nearest station to Valley Airfield.
