LMS Red paintwork? , Still in use as it has a no smoking sign and the platforms are clean.
Thanks

Were you standing on the once famous platform 2 at which a train arrived from platform 13 at Euston, after a football game involving those numbers??

Ex Pat - That is the first time I have had to do Google research on an answer, rather than a question!! You are correct, though for the younger readers, since major remodelling in the 1980s it is no longer platform 2, it is now platform 5. Do you want to share the answer or leave it for someone else.

Correction, that should read platform 12, I was reading the diagram upside down :D

Thanks Jim - I'll leave it to somebody else to do a bit of Googling (saved you having to do a clue this morning!).

Clue - One of the football teams that Ex-Pat alludes to is one of only five that played in the English leagues that have an "X" in their name.

Correct Glencairn - it is Crewe Station (the "X" being in Alexandra), and Ex-Pats post referred to the 13-2 FA cup replay defeat that Crewe suffered in 1960, Tottenham being the winners.

A Heritage Railway to find.

There is only one here.
There are two terriers here, neither is a Yorkshire one or a Bedlington one.
Invincible is here but not Illustrious
A French beach will help to find another loco that is here?

What is the name of this Heritage Railway?

Correct! The French beach -- Juno. Allied landing beach in 1944. Two A1X class Terriers - Newport and Freshwater.

Thanks Glencairn, I like the easy ones. :D

Hopefully this won't prove to be very difficult.

In relation to railways what did the British government decide to do in 1874?

Railways act 1874, create arbitration system for trading disputes?

Was it legislation to standardise the gauge across all railways?
