Neil, I wonder if this one could be of the Up direction working of this train? : Because, although it indeed looks like 'near Welwyn'(Garden City, south of : The six tracks form a good clue to that), I can only think that the twin banner repeating signals bracket, the rear of which is visible through the bridge, would be those for Hatfield No.2 box's Up Fast & Slow First Home signals, making the train, more specifically, as running on the UF (& the bridge, that of the A414 road to Hertford), north of Hatfield.

In case of very local historical interest to anyone, I could have more precisely described the A414 as running between the nearby 'Jack Olding's' Corner junction on the A1, and Hertford (this is still, as stated, just north of Hatfield).
