Read the question.
Quite - RTFQ is a variation on the computing adage RTFM which stands for read the f**king manual. The Q stands for question. The question said "Give a station not at the end of a line/branch ...", in case you hadn't noticed, Uxbridge is at the end of a line/branch.

I have still not been credited with my answer for Q8 Borough!!
Although seeing as that could give me more points, maybe I shouldn't complain :wink:

Bizarrely I had scored it correctly even though I messed up the list of answers. I've now changed the list to include you :)
