Ballater Railway Station - 5

Well, here is a clue!

Ballater Railway Station was the arrival and departure point for members of the Royal Family visiting Balmoral from London. One could hardly expect them to wait for the train in the public waiting room! Sadly the station closed to traffic in 1966, but the station buildings have been preserved and it is now possible for members of the public to enter the Royal Waiting Room.
