    Thanks very much! :)

    Have a go at this one:

    1) The origin station's name consists of more than one word.
    2) En route, the service calls at a station whose 3-letter station code has a letter that appears twice. *
    3) The journey is timed for 100mph max.
    4) The destination station is west of the origin station.

    *
    Clarification for Clue 2:
    In the station's code, there's a letter that appears twice, ie. 2 out of 3 times. For example: Moses Gate (MSS) or Saltash (STS).

    Not that one, I'm afraid. :)

    3) The journey is timed for 100mph max.
    4) The destination station is west of the origin station.
    5) The first and last digit of the class of train which operates this service are odd numbers.

    Sorry - I totally forgot this game was even a thing! :(

    I'm afraid your guess is incorrect.

    1) The origin station's name consists of more than one word.
    2) En route, the service calls at a station whose 3-letter station code has a letter that appears twice. *
    3) The journey is timed for 100mph max.
    4) The destination station is west of the origin station.
    5) The first and last digit of the class of train which operates this service are odd numbers.
    6) The origin station has undergone two renaming procedures.
    7) The destination station has the name of a fruit in its name.
    8) The origin station's name is suffixed in 'Central'.

    2. Destination station was opened in the 21st Century.
    3. The TOC operating this journey does not serve London.
    4. The journey operates once per day via this routing.
