Dollis Hi....

Only joking.

Future stations down which leg of the trousers of time, though? I'd like to suggest something from my fantasy trousers of time here (stop sniggering in the second row, you!) and post Manor Top

Although there is already a tram stop there, I'm referring to the underground station that will be built when they build a tunnel from Darnall to Dronfield, in order to make my commute easier. This tunnel will have a lit cycleway in a parallel tunnel to the railway so that I never again have to cycle up Prince of Wales Road in Sheffield.

In that case I post you Didsbury Village (opening in the summer, apparently).

Doesn't sound very rural to me but, then, I don't know Manchester.

That clearly sends us on the "Golden Arrow" (what a wonderful name for a train) to Dover (Marine).

The obvious move would be to Orange, but I'm not sure we're allowed to go to France on a Tuesday. However something to do with kitchen tools is clearly required, so what about Counter Drain (M&GNR).

Oh she is. There with the meds every time reality bites.

Now the blood level in my caffeinestream has dropped back to normal levels I can consider the situation after the earlier holding moves.

Actually, some interesting questions are raised at this point in the game. Northern Line Spoons of course are the subject of many column inches in Totally Mornington Crescent and Weekly Nidd, as you probably know. This is an unusual one, though, with several counters held at signals awaiting a space on the Central/District shared lines. There are two obvious options - a move to the Jubilee line, or a full frontal assault on Hainault. Our choice between them raises important questions. Are the blue chips likely to be evenly spread? Will the Hainault option fall foul of a Trump Ruff? Will the switch to National Rail running tracks derail the reverse shunt attempt at South Kensington? Has Baptist Trainfan's little issue been resolved by the antibiotics? How did Alaric find the beer with the pepper in it? Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?

Leaving aside the question of how many roads a man must walk down before they call him a man, I think it's probably safer to eschew both options and run to Paddington. That'll clear the Spoon but of course there's still every danger of a dead heat on the Central Line with deep-level stations in Nidd. Depends, really, on how AberVicar responds.

The antibiotics are working fine, thank you. They have reduced my oppressive fear of certain folks in the Midlands (Shakespeare Country, you know ...) by 95%. Of course, they might just be placebos (how would I know the difference?) - but even then there is always the issue of mind over matter to be factored in.

Your last post leaves us with very little choice, even though it puts the whole of Latin America (east of the Andes) into spoon: Lima (Desamparados).

You're spooning in Latin America [Eek!] . how very... something. I think you may need to change your meds, LMS or not - it sounds like you've got some masty side-effects there.

In the hope of keeping my few remaining brain cells active, I feel a sideways spoon is in order, and so I offer you Wemyss Bay

And very painful that would be too!

However, that's not quite what I was aiming at. It feels a bit underhand, but unless I'm very much mistaken there's now a vortex bearing straight down North London taking me to

Mornington Crescent!

I think we should play the reverse version this time around. Mornington Crescent is therefore by definition the opener; let's see if we can drill back to the first station in the forward game, were we playing one.

So are you saying that the aim is to get back to Exeter St Davids (which was the final station before your MC)?

Oh, and by the way, Rayners Lane

No; the intention is to play the entire game backwards working out what the previous move must have been from the move just played. Until we get there, we don't know what the starting station was.

For example, for someone to have got to MC from Rayner's Lane, the Northern Line must have been in Spoon, and at least two players must have declared their diagonals. Therefore, it naturally follows that the preceding move can only have been Mudchute.

See how this works? To help a little, for a move to Mudchute, there must have been a blue chip available on the Circle Line and no reverse shunts wild. That should give you a clue as to the previous move.

Good Lord! It must have been! That's an unusual move.

Trying to establish possible re-entry points that could have been used to get there, I'm forced to conclude that the move before that must have been, amazingly, Magrathea

This is a lot more taxing and complex than the forward game, isn't it?

Playing the entire game backwards, seeing as the Holgate Bridge turntable is out of action until Friday, earliest, will mean a highspeed reverse shunt all the way to Noitcnuj Droftaw. Hang on to your hats.

I'm sorry; but if we are travelling by Multiple Unit then we merely have to switch to the other cab and - as if by magic - we are going forward once more. Mind you, we would still need a Reversible Line (now that would flummox the Fat Controller) or else we would need to do a Permissive Double Reverse Shunt to allow us to access the Down Slow Line (Rule 55 naturally applies, together with the use of Signalling Collars and Facing Point Locks).

Assuming we've done all that, then we can daintly alight with Elaine at Ruislip Gardens, although the electric train will no longer be red (except for the doors). I'm not sure where John Betjeman got onto the train, presumably at Challow or Wantage Road

Of course the most "backward" of places was Dylan Thomas' Llareggub - but we don't want to confuse AberVicar, even though it is presumably near him on one of the Welsh Lines such as the Taff Vale or the Rhymney.

Llareggub was somewhere near the sea, so not in any of the valleys.

Let's stay very close to home and confuse matters with a past and future station that does not exist in the present.

I think you need to explain that one, BT. I don't see how one could have got to Market Harborough from Winchester. I'm fairly sure that the previous move would have had to have been Berwick upon Tweed, because of the diagonals and the reverse flush in trumps.

Any other thoughts?

Aha! So the first move must have been Euston Square!

Let's just nip across to Euston then to start a normal direction game.

You may be. As yet no-one has a full set of any colour, so rents are normal, but it will only be a matter of time before someone starts building hotels.

If we were playing the dice version (it's been done a couple of times on ISIHAC) then it'd be safer; as it is, I don't need to roll a double pi to go to South Kensington

There's only one possible move after that, and it's glaringly obvious:

Dollis Hill

Think very carefully now; I can imagine getting into a position where the only possible move after DH is LS, and after LS, DH. An infinite loop.
