 Bristol Parkway railway station - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bristol Parkway is a railway station on the northern edge of Bristol, at Stoke Gifford in South Gloucestershire.
It was built in the 1970s to give Bristol a station on the railway running from London to South Wales, which passes just north of the city.
When a permanent station was built, it was architecturally unimpressive: a single low building on the north side of the tracks at the far west end, with footbridge access over the "goods loop" tracks to the two long through platforms.

 Didcot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The station was renamed Didcot Parkway in the 1980s and the old GWR provender stores were demolished (the provender pond was kept to maintain the water table) to become a car park so that the station would attract travellers from the surrounding area.
The more obvious location for the original line to Bristol would have been the town of Abingdon a little further north, but the landowner, Lord Wantage (Robert James Lindsay), is reputed to have prevented the railway coming close to the town.
The position of Didcot at the junction of the routes to London, Bristol, Oxford and to Southampton via the Didcot, Newbury and Southampton Railway made the location of strategic importance to military logistics, in particular during the campaign on the Western Front and the build up to D-Day.

 Reading_railway_station
As constructed, Reading station was a typical Brunel designed single-sided intermediate station, with separate up and down platforms situated to the south of the through tracks and arranged so that all up trains calling at Reading had to cross the route of all down trains.
Irrespective of railway developments, local authority plans show a comprehensive redevelopment of the area between the town centre and the river, including the station, by 2020.
The limited number of through platforms, together with flat junctions immediately to the east and west of the station, and the fact that north-south trains need to reverse direction in the station, mean that the station is a choke point with trains often having to wait outside the station for a platform to be available.
