smati001n. OK, not the exact location. Due to track alterations, sale of railway land and new buildings it's not possible to get the right shot. The bridge that the train is passing over is the one in the mid-ground of the screen capture.

smati002n. On a diverted journey from Birmingham to London, the opportunity was taken to capture the same location, compete with the slab like addition to the original station. I'm sure that someone found it architecturally beautiful . . . especially the one that got paid for designing it. (PW)
