Just to confirm my inkling

Are you at a station that sees ONLY C stock trains?
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

I think you mean "Is it red?", to which my answer is "No" (7/13)

Inkling confirmed - "Yes" (8/13)
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

No! (9/13)

A quick summary I'm:
Not on a deep level line.
In Zones 2-4.
With platforms in open air.
There's no interchange with other lines.
I'm Southwest of a stright line drawn across the map from St John's Wood to Bermondsey.
The Line is not red.
And it uses only C stock trains.

I trust all the information above is correct! :)

No (10/13) - I think we're getting close now - three more questions to go!

Does your station name contain the letter O in its name?

If I do it successfully then I cannot subsequently guess the station, because it'll be three questions in a row and I'll've done all the legwork for someone else.

Does it have an L in the station name?

Ah, "Where Am I" can be such a cruel game... :(

Yes! (12/13) - so, who's gonna ask the lucky 13, then?

I've narrowed it down to Wood Lane or Latimer Road for someone, have a guess!

BTW the Premiership question could've been red or blue coloured lines ;)
