Ah!

A unilateral horizontal transit - very antipodean - excellent (little caffeine required there, I fancy . . . )

Perhaps a left-hand involute:

Hatch End?

Sir, you sneak in the wee small hours and Hatch End?

The obvious ploy is Bayswater, using Krolbélsmitzars Meanda.

M'Lud's timing and execution is impeccable, as usual.

No-one expected M'Lud to fall into the Bayswater trap, of course.

Larsvarnadahns was also highly regarded for her elegant Reverse Edge:

Berkwick subscribes that the only way to counter a Reverse Edge is with a Sliding Partial Inverted Gyrational Omni-Traverse (or SPIGOT) however Berkwick was indeed a Berk in my humble opinion. Laura, the lovely lady of the dancing veils (can she play MC?, i care not good sir!) tells me a Full Bodied Thrust should do the trick so its off to:

Shepherds Bush.

Having studied (as best one can) the scant available texts and the progress of the game, but nevertheless sensible of my status as a newcomer (and therefore as a claimant if I may be so bold of both Trilby’s Allowance and Viscount Slim's Inclusion), at this point I offer with trepidation but I have to say with a certain degree of hope:

Mark Lane

Welcome, RJM to the noble quest!

trepidation but I have to say with a certain degree of hope
Indeed, but one has to start somewhere . . .

Not familiar with Mark Lane - he doesn't feature in recent MC archives (post 1847, anyway).

May one offer an alternative continuation, in the spirit of Trilby’s Allowance (the less said about Viscount Slim the better!):

Harringay Green Lanes?

. . . and the very best of British!)

Welcome
Thank you for your kind welcome. I have to say that since posting my first move, I have watched not without anxiety to see if my opening play would be accepted by even one of the obvious adepts here, or whether I would have to retreat, mocked perhaps by my betters, to a further term of study before sallying forth once more. So, still uncertain that I have quite cracked the conundrum that is, to me, a legendary and awesome game I will shut up and try to play.

In proposing Mark Lane, one of the former London Docklands stations (along with Wapping and Surrey Docks) and I think, post 1847, I relied on Slingsby's Artifice (1802 [disputed]).

An advantage of the Artifice (and a balance to its awkward construction, some say) is that its use does not have to be declared.

So, presumptuous - certainly, and for that I beg your indulgence of a novice. Bumptious, even? Perhaps...

Nonetheless, I accept your continuation, but with an extension:

Gospel Oak

Sudbury Town indeed, fast moves now let's keep the play quick and the banter even quicker. A Fleet-Footed-Faraday's-Forward Flip to:

Kreinshóur Mrs R T graduated Perth 1929.
Upney to The Actons, shows determination, but to corner in Acton Town demonstrates the Tiger personality

Either play should have been suspended when a Liverpool FC beach ball fouled the track or the deflection should have been compensated (Dalgleish-Molby Reductive Method). Since neither action was implemented a G20-KWQ13 corrective manoevre should be accomplished (Appendix 14(ix)). The best remaining option would be Tottenham Court Road

Seems a litte sensitive, however one does not want to upset the tea-ladies and miss one's bunt cake therefore:

A most erudite and well contrived run of play. One will do one's best to emulate so fine a volley and continue the run by submitting...

Marylebone..........


(thus opening up all sorts of possibilities)

Rotherhithe, then Marylebone? Genius, gentlemen.

Wheeling out the Tiger,

Tigers, lions and bears oh my!. Just in case, let add a mongoose to the mix therefore eradicating any sneaky Cobra-Style Plays which may be lurking. Play sidles to:

Sloth my good fellow.
Good on your advancement to Acton Central, I was a trite concerned that you might be about to do: The retraction as perfected by
Will E Turner-About. WETA did the self same opening move of the 1937 Carshalton Allcomers challenge, and steadfastly refused to leave Acton Town.
He became like the fellow that is trapped by the tide.

Use of Turnpike lane, demonstrates military planning.
