Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I know the first one definitely was, but don't know about the other two... £1m questions on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Correct. As you probably know, the first was Judith Keppel's final question. The second one was for the second winner, David Edwards. The third one was Egghead Pat Gibson's fin...

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. David Aaaargh! Acronym overload! We'r...

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Which 1986 hit single has a title inspired by the occasion when the singer met French composer Pierre Boulez at a party? Answer: Paul Simon was at the party with his first wife, Peggy. Monsieur Boulez presumably misheard or misunderstood their names and called them Al and Betty. Hence, "I can call ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Have a lot of the closures changed now for this date as is showing very different on TFL website? That is a big difference. Previously we expected no Circle/District service at stations from Tower Hill to Earls Court. Now it's no Circle/H&C service between Moorgate and Hammersmith. It does bring ba...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

So what is the actual Waterloo station that is in the R15 draw LU of NR? Waterloo (LU) will be the "start station" for R15 generator purposes and be one of the 15 challengers would need to visit. What are the chances that Waterloo will turn out to be the ONLY station south of the river in the 15? T...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Regarding Blackfriars (NR), it may be excluded from the 15, but is it banned altogether. For instance, could you catch a north-bound train if you use the northern entrance or a south-bound train if you use the southern entrance? You could argue that the train won't be crossing the river. Having see...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Sounds very tricky and intriguing :!: Maybe you can leave Waterloo by either mode, lets see what the BERC says... :?: Yes, it depends... if Waterloo is the first of the 15 then we need clarification - or is it just a pre-determined starting point and not (necessarily) one of the 15? If it's not one...
