Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

And the scores (including cumulative scores)?

The scores? Oh yes...

In descending order:

1. rhubarbrhubarb: 8.5 points (Q8 incorrect and half awarded for Q3).
2. tubeguru: 7.5 points (Q6 and 8 incorrect, give you half for Q1- all three stations are in Z3).
=. Sam: 7.5 points (Q1 and 8 incorrect, half awarded for Q3).
3. greatkingrat: 4.25 points (with penalty). Q8 incorrect half awarded for Q3. (Scoring amended)
4. scrxisi: 3.75 points (with penalty). Q2 and 8 incorrect, half awarded for Q6.
5. starkey: 1.5 points (Q7 correct and half awarded for Q3)
=. jamesthegill: 1.5 points (with penalty). Q2, 6 and 7 correct.
6. steeevooo: 0 points (all questions incorrect).

Putting these into the league table gives...

1. tubeguru: (50.5 points) [6 rounds entered]
2. greatkingrat: (34.25) [5] (amended scoring)
3. barrykas: (34) [4]
4. Sam: (31.5) [4]
5. scrxisi: (29.75) [4]
6. rhubarbrhubarb: (25.5) [3]
7. jamesthegill: (11.5) [4]
8. starkey: (9) [5]
9. uefacup81: (8) [2]
10. garion24wales: (7) [1]
11. Andi: (0) [1]
=. Edgemaster: (0) [1]
=. steeevooo: (0) [1]

Despite me being a rather poor quizmaster on this particular round, would be silly to ask if you want another set of questions?

I'm doing well considering I'm not putting any effort in whatsoever...

I'd like to argue qn 1: your qn was: "1. What attribute is shared by Woodgrange Park, South Tottenham and Acton Main Line?" - there is no mention of it being a unique attribute, therefore i suggest that the fact that they are all rail stations is also an attribute that is shared by the three.

Tangy even concedes that they are all stations in Neil's scoring:

I got 8.5 so if you halve it, it comes to 4.25.

Another round would be nice, but the questions need to be specific in their meaning to avoid the thing we've just had for question one.

Sorry, greatkingrat, you are quite correct. Scoreboard will be adjusted accordingly.
