I have a sneaky feeling that Edgware Rd (H&C) will be drawn as the starter.... Any other guesses :?: :?:

Of the 64 Z1 stations, alphabetically they have been drawn very much on the high side including 63 & 64 and three consecutive no's 52,53,54 :shock: ....

Also you could almost throw a blanket over the area of covered by 5 of the starting stations...

Furthermore we have already had the 2 stations drawn with the most starting options
Kings Cross with Circle/Met, H & C, Picc, Northern and Viccie
Waterloo with, Bakerloo, Northern, Jub and W & C

Station/Alphabetical number

Vauxhall / 60 (although this was chosen rather than drawn)
St James Park / 52
Sloane Square / 54
Westminster / 64
Kings Cross / 30
Angel / 3
Waterloo 63
St Pauls 53

So my theory is that we are due a number in the "teens" and in the NW area of Z1

If you guess correctly do you get a 5 minute head start?

How funny, Kev, I have had the same feeling about Edgware Road Circle.

Just noticed that this station came out for the Saturday R15 so my vibes must have been for that :shock:

In view of that I now have a feeling for Regents Park
