Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

If ? = four years and ! equals 15 years, what does & equal at time of posting? This one's been bothering me, because I have another question of my own to post!

My route, in the category of "Don’t do it this way, kids"... Starting at Waterloo (NR) , SWR to Vauxhall, Victoria to Stockwell, Northern to London Bridge, Jubilee to Canada Water and back to Waterloo (LU) . So, a 45 minute loop. Based on tangy’s incredulous reaction when I revealed my route to him,...

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.

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.
