The fact the thread title misspells 'entries' and doesn't refer to railway stations properly is really putting me off entering. :/

You mean "train station" should be "railway station", right?

In that case, why aren't "bus stations" and "coach stations" called "road stations"? ;)

Does one go to a fire station to catch alight?

Allow me to stir further... I'm guessing you're the sort of person who objects (vehemently) to the no-walking-escalator experiments at Holborn.

It now says Entries rather than Enteries. But I'm not changing the train part :wink:
