Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Great suggestions from tubeguru. Also, a glance at the Wikipedia entry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackrod_railway_station talks about the weekend bus replacement service between 2015 and 2018 which may hint at a methodology issue that would skew towards only weekday traffic being reported.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

"Which member of the "Gang of Four" did you have in mind?"

Shirley Williams at Crosby or David Owen in Plymouth were my main thoughts.

Would you class The Speaker as an independent for the purposes of this question?

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Without checking, I'll guess at either a seat held by one of the Gang of Four, or Brighton Pavilion.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I'm intrigued by the use of the term circuit. I could understand something like grandstand, but circuit is surprising.

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

Thanks for clarifying - I assume that you are also excluding the hybrid combination of straight and loop traversed when travelling Hythe-Hythe via Britannia Points and Dungeness on the fortunately-aforementioned RH&DR :-)

Scalable Vector Graphics. And TfL rather than TFL :-)

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Anyway, apologies to tangy for distracting from the question that started this thread. Only tracktakid responded before I caused havoc.

That was an impressive yet unexpected reaction - just think what I could have achieved if I had tried to do it deliberately! Thank you to xcooler123 for explaining, RJSRdg for amplifying, and apologies to michael_churchill and anyone else who was infuriated by my scurrilous implication that those wh...

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

It may be worth clarifying your definition of "light rail" - for example, the RH&DR was created under a pair of LROs in the 1920s under the 1896 Act et al, and the K&ESR and EKLR are both examples of "Colonel Stephens" railways created under the 1896 Act et al.

"I had intended running along the old Ongar section from about 3am" I know nothing about this specific area but, without wishing to be a killjoy, may I genuinely suggest that you consider the possibility of encountering dogs, shotguns, etc before behaving in such a suspicious manner at 3am in an iso...
