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 Rules said:
  • 1. The aim of the game is to work out what journey a player is thinking about with the help of a series of clues, three major elements have to be deduced; the originating station, the destination station and the TOC/Rolling Stock travelled on, one clue for each element must be set in the first post, along with a clue regarding the actual journey which should be about something like landmarks passed, the sort of area you pass, or the type of journey that it is (the clues can be reasonably ambiguous at this stage, as long as the round gets easier as it goes along)
  • 2. One new clue must be set out in each response by the “Journey Setter” (the Journey Setter is the player who currently has the floor), a round is only finished when all the elements have been solved.
  • 3. After the initial post by the Journey Setter only one new clue can be posted at a time.
  • 4. The journeys must be real UK National Rail journeys at all times, journeys with changes are not currently permitted.
  • 5. If 48 hours pass without response from the Journey Setter the floor becomes open.
  • 6. If 24 hours pass without any responses to a Journey, the Journey Setter can post a new clue.
  • 7. The winner of each round takes the floor, unless they declare open floor (please do this when posting responses, to keep the game moving).
  • 8. If a player gets only one or two elements of a Journey correct, the Journey Setter can declare that fact, although that will make the rest of the game easier as the first player to post a response with all three journey elements correct will win the round.
  • 9. Finally have fun, and if you have any questions please contact the Quizmasters.

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.
