    An early view of 1353 City of Edinburgh standing in a station with the end of the name visible on the lamp by the safety valve. The visible letters are the last four, HLEY. Where might this be?

    Isn't this the SE corner of Bletchley station, loco headed south?

    I came to the same conclusion. Weren't the platform numbers at Bletchley rather confusing?

    There is a photo of Bletchley on page 19 of Bill Simpson's Oxford to Cambridge Railway Volume 2 (OPC 1983), showing rather indistinctly, what appears to be the same type of lamp.
