You can join bad things at this station, I heard.
Trooperslane, on Belfast -- Larne line, Northern Ireland? (Historically, "troop" and "trooper" -- while they can apply to Geneva-Convention-observing soldiery -- rather more often imply raping-and-pillaging, military or quasi-military not-very-good guys. You can go along the lane, to enlist as an -- un-nice -- trooper .)
Dale, you're on the right lines with the last bit. It's in GWR territory.
Seam = join
Ills = bad things
Sounds like = I heard
It sounds like a single man would pause for a spell after this station.
No, that's not it.
The only possible answer I can think of for this one is totally fatuous and silly, and, for sure, wrong.
Well I'm totally fatuous and silly (those are my good points) so why not give it a try.
Very handsome of you, sir. I thought -- Monks Risborough. A monk (thus a not-married man) travelled to the station serving this "borough"; at the station, he sat down for a while ("paused for a spell"), for a rest after his tiring train ride; then stood up again -- rose (or in vulgar language, "riz"), and resumed his onward journey on foot. (I did say it was silly !)
Not that one.
Older members may have heard it mentioned on the radio.
I didn't realise it was going to be that fatuous and silly.
It might help you win the pools.
I imagine there is a gap in the logic here: Betws-y-Coed
Nice try but writing to Horace in Betws-y-Coed wouldn't help you win the pools.
Horace Batchelor had advertisements about gambling systems on the wireless when he wasn't performing with the Bonzos on The Intro and the Outro.
Correct, for younger members a full explanation of the "pause for a spell" part of the clue can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydQ8I-qLH4o
Indian national park (unique speciality -- lions), and Turkish lake, meet at this location by the shore.
There is a park in India called Gir and a Lake Van in Turkey. (thanks Google)
Correct -- your turn.
Warlords or queer artisans get mixed up in battle at this appropriately named station
I am on holiday for the next two weeks so won't be around to confirm if someone gets this right. It is a fairly easy anagram clue though. So if you get it right you can take the floor and set the next clue.
Given the hint, it can't be Battle
I believe it is St Leonards Warrior Square but as duncanp isn't around I would like the endorsement of another member before setting a clue.
Yes, that probably is right, as St Leonards Warrior Square is an anagram of 'Warlords or queer artisans'.
Thanks, next clue:
The station in Lewis Hamilton's home town.
