No, there appear to be 4 (very early) trains on a Saturday morning that fit this criteria.
2 attempts
2 completions
(Not getting much quicker)

No (as an aside, XC doesn't manage any stations it serves, even if it is the sole provider of trains).
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Excellent! I've already started a general "Where Am I?", so I'll not confuse the issue by running another train one alongside it for now.
