    Good but not this time.

    1. This journey has a reversal.
    2. The origin station is next to a bus station.
    3. The destination station has 2 platforms.
    4. This journey operates on 6 days a week, in one direction only.

    5. This journey starts in a PTE area.
    6. This journey takes around 90 minutes.

    By the way, sorry for the delay folks! A camping holiday took me off radar for the weekend! ;)

    International journeys are not valid in this game.
    Also, I don't think London to Amsterdam takes 90 minutes (clue 5), or operates in 1 direction only (clue 4), or meets clues 1-3.

    It does operate one direction only you have you change on the way back. But it was only a guess

    Hull to Adwick (142)?


    Isn't that for security & passport (so, one doesn't change trains)?

    This only technicality as it doesn’t fit at all and realised it doesn’t fit with the other options when i posted. However, according to the timetables it’s separate services you can’t get a direct service like you can on the way there
