But thats the windows 98 version of Mornington Crescent for Dummies. The XP version amended that to

Hyde Park Corner

as Westminster was far to political and full of MP's

Oh thou who live in the past. The Vista rules require that the next move be to Green Park, but by the mandatory routing Hyde Park Corner > South Kensington > Circle Line to Kings Cross/St Pancras > Green Park.

One notes from the current Underground map that Mornington Crescent is closed for refurbishment. Does this mean we at condemned to sail on forever, a sort of ghost ship?

Oh I'm so disappointed with you, such a common place, well if we are keeping that theme and running out Silverlink trains and not the underground one must go to

Willesden Junction

which my map tells me is not far from Wormwood Scrubs!

Which means the next legal move can only be to:

Ladbroke Grove.

Sorry to be a party pooper rusty,but the prongwhip double entendre was
outlawed as a legal move in 1984 following the incident involving a certain member of the house of lords,a pair of frilly knickers and a cattle prod which took place at Amersham.

Nice move NOZ, therefore a reverse inverted brasillian with a double wisp takes us to

Elephant and Castle.

You can't use the Double Wisp on the way to Elephant and castle, Richo. It's still used for stations with more than one word to their name, certainly, but only those on the District or Metropolitan Lines. You probably didn't know because it's a very new rule, so I think we should let the move stand.

Prongwhip of course, being a standard decoy move when employed as an exciter rather than a tangential sweep. It merely requires a final switch at an adjacent junction using the Ticket Booth Differential and we have

Hr Twotter, you do realise that today is exactly one week before Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day, dont you?
Of course, the Israeli M.C. Hammer Accord 1952, would allow such a masterful final transit today, but only when playing nekked. Obviously.
I do feel a tad embarassed pointing this out to such a seasoned veteran, but one needs to check these things.

Well I think we need to insist on photographic evidence. In the interests of fair play, of course.
