    Hi all,

    Following a request from a member, the quizmaster's have decided that it's time for a return of The Journey Game for a one month trial (after which the game will be reviewed again). Last played in 2013, the old game can be found here: https://www.railforums.co.uk/threads/the-journey-game.74897/

    The rules can be found below:

    The first journey can be found below:
    1. The originating station has more than 5 platforms.
    2. The destination station is not electrified.
    3. The stock travels at speeds of up to 125mph.
    4. The journey takes over two hours.


    Enjoy.

    Neither of those I'm afraid.
    5: The journey only travels through England.

    Afraid that it's none of those either.
    Clue 6: The origin is a London terminus, the destination being south of the origin.

    Just a case of guessing the final destination...

    1) This service calls at all stations
    2) The journey is approximately 20 miles long, ± two miles
    3) The service is exclusively operated by AC EMUs
    4) The service terminates within two miles of the coast

    It looks like it’s somewhere in East Anglia. Without a measuring stick, I’m going to guess a GA 321 from Colechester to Walton-on-the-Naze?

    It's actually a 360, but it was Colchester to the Naze - take the floor, sire

    1) The starting station has more than 7 platforms
    2) The rolling stock is diesel
    3) The final station is non-electrified
    4) The train reverses direction on this route

    I hope that’s right.

    Chessington South isn't managed by Network Rail, though that is probably just a case of simultaneous posting.
