    Hopefully not too similar to ones we've done before.

    I say a station and the person below would say another station that has something in common with it. It doesn't have to be unique, but try and make it as different as possible!

    For example I might start with Cardiff Central, the next person would reply Kings Cross (both have a platform 0) and the person after could say Gatwick Airport (another Network Rail managed major station).

    So I'll start off with Gatwick Airport, and someone will reply with another station which has something in common with Gatwick Airport.

    Note that you should only reply with a station on the main BR network (e.g. not Underground or Preserved Railway) that is still open.

    You doubt Polesworth has a platform?

    Anyway, Rugeley Trent Valley - both have one train an hour to Euston

    Ah-ha, local knowledge prevails all :lol:

    No, you said that Polesworth only has one station in use, I think you meant to say platform.

    Lichfield Trent Valley, also has the suffix ''Trent Valley.''
