Nice up here ain't it. the birds are singing and the sun is shining and my train sits mivering in the siding while I wait on the platform. A Diesel train arrives but I don't want it so let it pass. My train exits the siding and I board and settle down. Off we go for a lively ride downhill for a few miles. After a series of curves and stops we head off at speed passing other trains on the way. We stop at a major junction and then off once more fast. Big trains and little trains I see as we go until we come to a station with four platforms where I alight. A smaller train I board for more downhill running to a place where a detective once lived. I change again and go to a place where a tall building associated with the homeless stands and change trains again. This, my final train will take me to my destination via an underground 'spaghetti junction' to a place where a very large shopping centre and road junction are. Where have come from/been/ and finished?

I think you started at Amersham, and gone to Marylebone, where you have changed onto the Bakerloo as far as Baker Street. After that, I've no idea.

My ideas in bold brackets, got a bit lost at the end!

I was gonna say that, but then I remembered he lets the diesel train pass, and Marylebone now has more than 4 platforms.

No. It still has 4 platforms, as the 2 new ones aren't finished yet.

So far I've got:

A Diesel train arrives but I don't want it so let it pass. My train exits the siding and I board and settle down. Amersham

After a series of curves and stops we head off at speed passing other trains on the way. Moor Park

We stop at a major junction and then off once more fast. Harrow on the Hill

Big trains and little trains I see as we go until we come to a station with four platforms where I alight. Finchley Road

A smaller train I board for more downhill running to a place where a detective once lived. Baker Street

I'm a bit lost after that...

Well we have got as far as Camden Town but not to my destination. So no-one has the total yet.

[I'm surprised at Seth though]

Joea1 is good at this ain't he? [Don't like his exploding microwave thingy though. I find it a bit upsetting to be honest]
