Of those with OHLE and a London Terminal it can't be C2C, LE, FCC, VT or FGW (or HEX as PAD has more diesel trains than electric). Which leaves LM but tractakid has already asked about them....

Are you on the SET high speed line?
Before I answer that, just have a careful look at what tractakid actually asked about LM. I even edited the quote for clarification just in case there was a query (but I didn't change the answer!)
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

Ok, so you ARE travelling with LM, just not on a train terminating at TRI, MKC or NMP
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Correct (13/20)! I'll ignore your SET question.

I'll have to log off for the night in a few minutes, but keep going for now...

Oh of course, I hadn't asked about direction! *doh*.

I really should have said 'started or terminated at'.

I was convinced it had to be a HS1 train.

Oh, good, you realised! I was panicking that we'd disagreed on the meaning of words such as "Terminate" and "Serve". Now I can rest in peace. So:

Yes! (16/20). We're on the home straight now. (I certainly was on the day...)

I think there are only four possible trains left.

  • I can now reveal that this train was one of eight I took last Monday, whilst travelling back home from a wonderful weekend in the Stockport area.

That would be the 18:47 MKC-EUS.

The 18:41 starts at BHM.
