I think Southeastern no longer run stopping services down the Bellingham line. I'm actually down to 2, because I missed something with Elephant and Castle which still receives Southeastern services.

Is it Loughborough Junction?

Is it Beckenham Hill? (I have one other option if both Loughborough Junction and Beckenham Hill are wrong.)

Right, my only remaining option is Crofton Park. Is that right? Otherwise I haven't a clue.

Oh, why did I look at Crofton Park and think "That's one word long"?

If it's not Crofton Park, it's something on the Wimbledon side of the loop.

Ah, I see - I hadn't realised that (despite knowing the line reasonably well over the years !). Thanks.
First to 100000 in the 2015+ Tumbleweed contest. Winner of a few rounds of a diverse range of quizzes/games. Some decent times in alternative challenges as a fiftysomething who merely walks briskly.

It's probably Woking again. :wink:

This is a serious quiz, there's no time for Loughborough Junctions.

The loop is served by Southern as well

Hurray! You've had two question 12s and two question 15s, so I think that's actually 17 questions... but within the limit anyway.

I won't set a new one - instead I'll continue with the current "On the Move" quiz, which I think is hard enough!

So is Southern for that matter though I think it is too picky!

After the current on the move quiz can we go back to standard please?

If someone wants to set another standard one they can, but I don't want to run two quizzes at once.

I would do another if you want, but if you would rather I don't do two in a row then I won't. Comments/new Where am I? offers please.
