Well, none of those stations have ticket offices, so I am forced to walk to Battersea Park to purchase my ticket along with my third green token.

Incredible. We seem to have jumped from 1865 to a few years into the future. That's Fox's gambit for you.

So it's an easy move to Nine Elms (Northern Line).
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.
(I really ought to change this; no-one understands it out of context.)

But the green token forbids moving to a different line on days that contain partial solar eclipses and/or are Tuesdays in months beginning with M... basic stuff right there Robbie.

I haven't either! I'll go to Enfield Town (along OakWOOD Road) where since its opening there has, I think, been two red tokens!
