I've solved this issue! I raised a support ticket and they told me to try testing other plug-ins.
It appears that the Social Warfare plug-in was causing the issue. I de-activated the free and paid versions of Social Warfare and the alignment went back to normal. After reactivating both Social Warfare plug-ins, the alignment is still OK. If it comes back, I'll contact Social Warfare.
I've updated this as I'm sure there's plenty of Studiopress users, who also use Social Warfare.
All the best!
Thanks for your help.
I've completely disabled WP Rocket (at first I turned off the ones you and they suggest), flushed my other cache and even downgraded WordPress core to 4.9.9 (pre-Gutenberg)..however..
I still have the same issue. When the page loads - for a split-second - the spacing is there but then it goes again.
Do you know what and where I need to add the CSS? I assume it was never there (something else was handling the spacing?).
Thanks and regards

After some intermittent issues with Featured Posts images disappearing, I've got a solution which has fixed it. Here are the issues and the fix in case someone else has the same problem.
Issue: Images not being pulled through on the Genesis Featured Posts widget. It appeared to be an intermittent issue in Chrome. The second time I checked it in Firefox - I got a browser mixed content (http and https) warning.
I checked the back-end and all my Media files were pointing to http. I had moved the site to https but only by the quick method using Cloudflare (which serves the site in https to customers but only at a Cloudflare layer and not the actual website back-end).
I got in touch with my amazing hosting company Siteground (I can't speak highly enough of them) and requested that they help me:
1) Change all my image files in the database to https
2) Move the site to Let's Encrypt https and make any changes to Cloudflare
They did both and the issue has now been fixed.
Hope that's useful to other people with similar issues.

I've cleared the cache (using WP Fastest Cache) and it seems to have fixed the problem. Before that, I'd found other broken images using Google Chrome.
Seems to be working OK now!
Thanks very much for your detailed response, much appreciated.
I don't know how the Google font has been replaced with a system font. It may have occurred when I was hacking around (!), however, certainly I don't know how to do that.
Can I clarify with you that you're only referring to the Oswald font which is used in the headers?
The body copy is using Helvetica Neue which is out of the box from the Metro Pro theme https://my.studiopress.com/themes/metro/#demo-full That's the text that looks really faint. Is that using the Google font?
If it is the Google font, is there anything I can do?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks very much.
All the best.
Thanks for your response. Your article was much clearer and looks like you have a very useful website.
Appreciate your help..thanks very much.
Happy New Year!
Thanks for your detailed response much appreciated.
Hmmm. So think I may have missed off a : in the Functions file or more likely I was inputting Droid+Serif in the stylesheet (carrying over the + which is used in Functions).
Thank you very much for helping me with this query and tripling my knowledge of css 🙂
Happy New Year!
Just to let everyone know that this was fixed when I de-installed the W3 Total Cache plug in.
Incidentally..every time I install W3 Total Cache it breaks my responsive theme but I got that fixed.
After I de-installed the plug in..the ad and text logo were on the wrong horizontal levels..so I shortened the width of the text logo.
Probably shouldn't be hacking into code but it worked 🙂
How can I thank you enough 🙂 but saying I'm extremely grateful for your kindness and expert knowledge.
I've been tinkering around for a few hours now and thanks to your help I've got amazing buttons http://thetrainhacker.com/railcards/family-friends-railcard/ My goal was to create a highlighted box/button to convert higher affiliate offers. I found this Studiopress article http://www.studiopress.com/design/colored-content-boxes-buttons.htm but didn't like the buttons. The box needs some work but it's fine for now.
At one point before I got this post I did get the buttons working but they looked like a hybrid of the one I wanted and the one above. I de-installed the W3 Total Cache plug in as that was causing havoc with both the button and the box.
I'm very grateful for your help.
Wish you all the happiness, health and success for 2015.
Thanks very much for your response.
The code is in my stylesheet and I've inserted the button on this page http://thetrainhacker.com/blog/night-riviera-sleeper/ (at the bottom of the content area).
<a class="btn" href="http://thetrainhacker.com/">The Train Hacker</a>
..however, it appears as a text link?!
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your response.
It's a strange one and must be an issue at the Pinterest end or Pinterest doesn't like my site!
To get the counter working I had to go into Pinterest and delete the pins and them do them over again. They show on the counter for a day or two and then disappear. It seems to be intermittent and random as some are showing in the counter and some are not.
I tried a couple of other plug ins and they're showing the same as Genesis Simple Share.
