Workington North is not all it's cracked up to be, but to be fair it isn't half as bad as the abomination of a railway station that is the "recently refurbished" Maryport railway station. (Or as it should be called - the Bus Shelters in Maryport that happen to be standing on a railway platform.) Either change the name, or just take down the plaque that rather excitedly commemorates the bus shelters being (re?) erected and then "officially unveiled" by a Cumbrian County Councillor, because to call it a refurbishment is somewhat of a joke.

Rant from last week over, I'll now ask a supplementary question.

Can a large body of water be seen from a platform at the station where you currently reside?

No (7/20), but it was tempting...

No (8/20), too damn cold for the seaside at the moment :)

Is your station on the line between (and including) Foxfield and Arneside?
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

I'll point out that a large body of water could be a large river, not just the seaside.

In light of this I'll ask:

Do you lie at, or to the North of, Maryport railway station?

Aspatria's a great station name. Is that where you've found yourself?

I haven't forgotten about this quiz; I'm just waiting for someone else to ask the next question! :P

As requested Robbie...

Is the station a request stop?
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Tube Challenge League Tables website, it's here at http://www.explorerticket.co.uk/tubechallenge

Tangy.
