I have some idea what I'm going to do - this will really reshuffle the North West Corner.

Chances are it will be a non exhibition day service ( if such a thing even exists then) . So NW finish would be the best option.

Oh and you are all to slow W******m sent me his 14hour 13min route so will see you on the day.

I see Met to Watford Junction, train to H&W, Bakerloo to Marylebone, Chiltern to Amersham and then deal with Chesham. As a possible ending. This of course raises the question of an Uxbridge reshuffle - possibly involving a Perivale doubleback, Hanger Lane - Park Royal and First Great Western to Greenford.

And for exhibition days an Epping start/finish and the A10 between Heathrow and Uxbridge?

I wonder...

I'm not going to tell you what I see, only that it fits into 'none of the above'.

Almost certainly. The idea is of course absolutely mad.

Anyone fancy a 142 bus from Watford Junction to Stanmore?

I reckon they should open up Verney Junction again so the sensible option is to get Virgin from Watford Junction to Milton Keynes and bus it over.
