Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

I'll take points off both of you indiscriminately if I get the chance :wink:

How very odd. That post said "1 point" when I closed down last night, and it still said "1 point" when I came back this morning - I even recorded it on my score sheet. Yet when I logged back in again it had magically become "60 points". 120-point penalty for editing.

Current scores: AC 227, TG 105, GB 82, JTG 2. Under the new rules, AC automatically wins since he now has a lead of more than 100 points.

What a foolish thing to do, Tube Geek! It was turning into quite a thrilling game and you just threw it away. I'm quite disappointed.

You took points off Tube Geek, even though it was hardly 'indescriminate'! It was his own stupid fault!

I was just typing a post saying that you (and to an extent me) have no chance and when I posted this happens!

I think it is a shame. Let's get Tube Geek's side on this debate, it could :?: a mistake?

There's no debate about this - he quite blatantly tried to cheat! I noted that TG's 1-point claim had succeeded last night and entered it in my scoresheet.

Congratulations on your victory, although it's not a very satisfying way to win...

Unfortunately not, I would much rather have gone ahead, well it is very nice, especially after thinking I had no chance winning.

I wanted a reason to get Tube Geek's side on this, anyway.
