Mr FGWFan was busy! I've only just (2 minutes ago!) seen this quiz! The Games section of this forum is commonly skipped by me, as it is of little relevance for myself, as I would prefer to read, say, an opinion on the latest VT operation change. Or post an opinion/response to opinion myself.

Yesterday, as is revealed elsewhere, I was away on a Brum and Leicester trip Tuesday night I was working, same for Monday. Hence, including the reason above, I did not guess at question 12, or the rest of this quiz. I daresay I won't on the next part, whenever that is done either, again for the first reason listed, as well as the fact I shall inevitably be busy working, eating, drinking, resting, watching TV/DVD/videos, sleeping, commuting or spotting.

Still, I'd wager no-one could say where Swansea Riverside, Victoria or St. Thomas were! In fact, now you mention it, I've got some more coding to do...

I wasn't suggesting you were under any obligation to answer the question! I only thought that you might have done, seeing as you reside in South Wales and might therefore know the history of Swansea's stations more than others.

Slight mis-interpretation of my post I think, however if you were somehow offended by it I apologise.
