Well, I would suggest Finsbury Park but I'm concerned that would put me 'in spoon'.... are Etonian rules in force or are we still playing the Wodehouse Revision?

How legal is the move to vauxhall?

I play it if it is, and i retract if it isn't.

No mention of it in the book from Finsbury Park, but Westminster, that is another matter. If I were to play that move, I'd expect a man outside my house with actual flintlocks in a box at dawn

What the the hell got into you ramsc? Please apologise immediately and reconsider your playing strategy!
In the name of good sportsmanship - I will apologise, for the second time on this thread. However, Lukeafb1 I think you will find that the stated rules also apply to Mornington Crescent. (Under the terms of the Waterloo doublet - introduced by the same Lord Cardigan)

Don't you read the IMCS updates, Good Sir?

Now, on with the game. I feel Vauxhall is a suitable move (assuming that (as stated above) no reverse badgering is allowed). Therefore, I move and we find ourselves at Pimlico

Pimlico it is. Since it is a Monday, a lateral half-pass to the Plimsoll Line is now permitted so I will move to ...

Digby Close.

Having been away for a few days I hadn't noticed the game had restarted.

However those few days could be extremely useful since I spent them in the Great Wen and was able to make a close examination of some of the more obscure connecting tunnels (the results of which will be available for public scrutiny in my forthcoming monogram on "The Influence of T'ang Dynasty Porcelain on the Tile Facings at Picadilly Circus Station" - it is incredible what detail one can see when one is slumped face down and semi-conscious).

Anyway, Waterloo (City Line).

An edifying move MadsDad. It brought the sad case of Count Trumpton to mind - as you may recall the poor guy insisted on playing a set of rules which restricted movement to the Waterloo and City line. After several hundred moves where the action shifted back and forth between Waterloo and Bank everyone point blank refused to play with him anymore. He eventually went mad, reduced to uttering "Waterloo... Bank... Waterloo..." every few minutes.

I will avoid this terrible situation by performing a reverse Czechoslovakian squab to Caledonian Road

Damn you, ramsrc, you spotted my cunning trap. (Pause to stroke a furry white pussy).

Using Linklaters string hypothesis, Bow Road.

A superb application of escutcheons circumnavigation there under_exposed.

Time to play my wild card I think - I will take the Mars Express to Cydonia (change here for the Mars Face)

Suggesting that ramsrc threw me a curved ball, and it doesn't appear in the Edinburgh Variation (oh, how I strive to stick with what I know!), I shall disregard his turn for Mars and play a blinder. I shall use the context of which the Edinburgh variation was built and move to:

Finchley Central

I would suggest that the Johnsons split dummy move of
Sudbury Hill, will keep you occupied.

A-ha! Just as I expected. Making the natural assumption that the DLR is in play - I will throw you in the Mudchute

We now move swiftly onto Amersham - it (at 500ft ASL) is the highest station on the network.

Interesting data however, Temple's exit on the district line has a 72 degree intersection with the north facing cardinal point of the great pyramid of Gizza. Anyone who has any higher degree of knowledge of pentagonal geometry will understand this phenomenun and therefore, this makes Temple the highest of the high.

Under article 19b of the railways act 1837, revision b, this is an irreversible multi-directional shunt.

This is all getting very PC. Application of the rules can only utilised when the rules have been ignored: however as this is an Aviation web site.CALEDONIAN ROAD
