Well that's the same Bromley, so not really that odd. However it would be funny trying to do that journey by rail ;)

Not really, they're in the same Bristol and it's a next-stop journey. It'd only be a funny combination if there were 2 Bristol's or if they were on sepeate lines (e.g. Pontefract Baghill-Monkhill). :P ;)
