If Edgware Road (H&C & Circle) is chosen, presumably:
- If you wish to go to Paddington then can choose whether to go to Paddington (H&C/Circle) or Paddington (District/Circle/Bak) as they are different stations served by different departures.
- If you wish to go to Earls Court or Gloucester Road (& stations beyond), again you can wait for the right train.

But if you wish to go to any one of Paddington (District/Circle), Bayswater, Notting Hill Gate, or High Street Kensington, do you have to go on the first train since they are all served by both District and Circle line trains which depart from Platforms 3 and 2 respectively, which are separated by a footbridge, or can you choose which one to take?
If we start at Edgware Road (Circle) and your team wishes to travel to any station to HSK (inclusive) you must take the FIRST train described going that way, despite leaving from different platforms. If your team wishes to travel to Paddington, you will need to decide which one to visit as these are two separate stations.

I will write this into the rules now.

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- sadly, not no more!

I hope to finish the quiz by 1900 but no gaurantees.

If you honestly try your best, but do choose the wrong platform at Baker St etc, I'm assuming no punishment will be enforced?

The next train boards are very good at Baker Street and tell you what the next "city" train is and what platform it will depart from. It is very common for a Met and Circle to be at thier respective platforms at the same time, but in these cases the next train board will list what order they SHOULD depart in.

Similar at Edgware Road (Circle) the next train boards will show what the platform the next HSK bound train will be.

+ possibly RobbieM for the social side, though I can't actually take part due to limping issues!
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

So it's not Malta, it's Bognor Regis. Malta is being saved for summer.

Very touch and go at this stage, as I am returning on the Friday. What time I am returning, though, is another matter. Knowing my family I am unlikely to make Liverpool Street for 12pm. I doubt we'll even leave by then, so don't put my name down JUST yet.

Rhys, if you book soon, there's a £5 advance child fare for the 08:56/09:30 from Bognor Regis direct into Victoria. You could ask your family if you could leave a little early on this train in order to make it.

Also, I live near Bognor Regis, I could possibly be able to give you a lift to London.

Yes, but if the car won't get you there in time you have 2 other options.
