Oh ****
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

In case anyone's wondering, it was me who answered "Aberystwyth", as Steeeeeeevooooooo didn't specify a London Underground station.

I've got a few questions lined up too, I won't rush to do it tomorrow now TG's volunteered.

I thought I'd been quite imaginative with my interchange station one, I think it was one of the more common answers!
