Been a while since I worked with TIPLOC codes ... it stands for 'Timing
point locations' rather than the station itself. So complex stations
like Clapham Junction having several routes through have different
timing points.

Not sure how up to date http://trains.barrycarlyon.co.uk/data/locations/
is and the link to the source is dead (along with other links to Phil
Deave), but then I found
Not sure that there has been much progress with that.

The open rail data is probably a source that we can use today,
for example.
