Incredibly simple premise, you answer a question somebody has already asked, then you ask somebody else a question, they then answer your question, and ask one of their own.


Here goes,

Technically Blackfriers and London Bridge aren't termini so this makes 12 correct.
assuming you mean Leeds City: 17
assuming you mean all stations in Leeds: 23
How many class 156 cars were built?

I'm sure he means Leeds City (but the 'City' title seems to have been dropped years ago, Leeds Central closed in the 1960s) but if he meant all platforms within the Leeds Group of stations (unlikely) then it would be 25, and if he meant all stations within the area controlled by Leeds Council, known as Leeds Metropolitan District (also unlikely), it would be more as that would include places as far as Guiseley, New Pudsey etc.

As you quote 23 platforms I assume that means 3 extra stations, probably Cross Gates, Headingley and Burley Park which are in the built-up area of Leeds but I can't find a definition for that area.

Interestingly, while researching this I realised I was wrong when I told Laverack2 that his Hull-York via Leeds journey wasn't valid, in fact it is valid on map TP as doubling back within the Leeds group is permitted. (Excluding Hull-York 'route Direct' tickets obviously, but Cottingham-York 'Route Hull' tickets are fine - that's an error in the RG)

Anyway on the topic of Grouped Stations, can anyone name all members of the Bromley South Group?
