Steeevooo did Rickmansworth. I assumed that we were then going along the North Curve to Croxley, and then Watford. After that I suppose we should strictly do Croxley again but I propose that we skip it and go straight to Moor Park.

Your turn?

Oh yes, missed that. Yes, we can skip Croxley.

So what happened to Watford then? All right, I'll do it myself:

With a terrific force, one rock descended.

Moor Park next...

It appears that Tube Geek is more than happy to suggest the fictitious route for us to take, but not so willing to actually use his imagination to partake...

No ordinary rock! They had witnessed outlandish occurrences, definitely.

Just to clarify - I was attempting to complete your sentence in the previous post: "and revealed kryptonite... no ordinary rock!"

"Phew! It's not natural!" Ed remarked.

We only need North Harrow to complete the Metropolitan Line. If someone does it next, then I'll teleport down to South Ealing to start the Heathrow branch of the Piccadilly.

I'd love to, but I don't really understand what it means!

So, on Underground towards Heathrow, entering a line instantly. Next go?

However, on Underground networks, services lumber on with exceptionally awkward Sunday timetables.
