    That certainly makes it look fake I agree.

    However, having thought about it, if that unit has been photoshopped, then how did the reflection of Broadway's bracket signal get onto the train's front screen in the first place, unless someone has been VERY clever?

    I would imagine it’s not hard to superimpose reflection to be honest.

    If they went to all the bother of bringing the unit to the railway, why the need to photoshop it at all though. I reckon that somewhere on the cutting room floor, there's a photoshopped image where having the bracket signal in a reflection did make sense, and someone said "Actually, I'd like it in this photo instead please", maybe a little last minute, so it just gets pasted in and stuff like the lack of shadow on the rails and the reflection no longer making sense in its new context gets missed out

    It does look like our bracket signal, with the empty arm on it. With the unit facing the wrong way for it.
    The unit looks too big, the front skirt is touching the platform edge.

    It is a complex double bluff. You make a real photo look fake to throw people off. Man, you blue pillers, you need to get the red pill. ;)

    Man, didn't you guys learn anything from the so called 'moon landings' or the Kennedy 'assassination', Tupac or Elvis?

    And the tumblehome overhanging it. It does bring home, especially with details like the reflection, which would fool a lot of people, just how easy it is to fake reality nowadays.

    When he isn't working in a chip shop in Cheltenham.

    Why else is Kilmersdon being overhauled so fast? If you re-arrange the letters they spell 'Elvis is alive'

    Don't get Neil Young started about Southern Man.

    Elvis is in Cheltenham. It is obvious. Look at the clues.

    Pet Shop Boys record the video of an Elvis cover version at the Bluebell. The Bluebell has a class P number 27

    A cover version is a different version of an original. The Bluebell is the original, the MHR is a cover version. They had a class 27

    The MHR has a 'Schools'. You go to school to learn things. That 'Schools' is called 'Cheltenham'.

    Cheltenham is the end of the GWSR. It is 27 miles from Stratford Race Course to Cheltenham Racecourse. Elvis is alive and working on the GWSR and driving Kilmersdon.

    Also, people have been fooled by the Fake Kilmersdon that is doing the rounds. In that video was not Kilmersdon but a ringer. According to the Kilmersdon reddit, a Peckett in the north vanished in the middle of the night, swept out of a yard by a load of guys in SUVs and a dark glasses. Next thing you know 'Kilmersdon' appears in Hampshire, all stripped down. Co-incidence, I don't think so. Just like the moon landings, Shergar and not injecting bleach.

    Some of those links are so tenuous that I can only conclude that you used to write the clues for 3-2-1 back in the 80s!

    With tenuous links like this I'm beginning to think that Monkey Magic is sideling as Siri on the iPhone. Ever wondered why Fire Engines are Red?

    There is often mention about the live camera feed on the Broadway Station Maintenance blog by clicking on "Broadway Station Live" on the right hand side brings up a live view. The actual link is https://ipcamlive.com/broadway2

    If you change the number 2 at the end to number 1, you get a different view further along the north end of platform 1. Not as interesting as the station view, but try it anyway.
