We have a winner - xxxxlbear is correct with St Albans.

St Alban was the first British Christian martyr, and ended his life by being beheaded circa AD 280.

Over to the xxxxlbear for the next brainteaser.

All good answers but we have a winner!

Duttonbay has it with White City.

It primarily existed to service the local industry (in particular the Olympic Tyres factory) and the greyhound racing track in the area, known as White City Coursing Club. The station only ever had a westbound platform, even though at its peak, fifty services a week stopped at the station.

Just a semi-educated guess....

Yarraville?

Don't know if it was interlocked but will try Royal Park ?

In the past - Clifton Hill.

None of Yarraville, Royal Park or Clifton Hill

Apologies all.  I have just realised that the answer I had in mind for the question was wrong. The location never had interlocked gates.

I think my punishment for an incorrect question/answer is to declare open floor.

We've all done it at some time or other.Embarassed

I don't think there's any need to talk of punishment or call open floor duttonbay. I'm sure everyone will be happy for you to just put up another of your brain teasers.
