Excellent Glen I was trying to find something like this yesterday... :D

So we know that none of these will be in the hat or indeed Covent Garden so just leaves the 52 possibilities.....

Covent Garden is still in the bag- the wheelnut covers I use for the Zone 1 draw are all untouched from last year. I am not opening each one just to take out Covent Garden... so if it does get drawn it will get thrown back in and another station picked instead.

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