5. The journey from the origin station to a London Terminal can be done using one change with two (or one) of 7 TOCs

Could you please clarify this. Does this origin station have 7 TOCs (in which case it must be Doncaster or Crewe)? Does this station actually have a direct service to London or not?

I mean that by using one change (sorry, wasn't very clear) you could travel using a combination two of 7 TOCs (for example XC + VTWC or EM + VTEC) to take you to London.

Bonus Clue
6. The starting station does have a direct service to London

7. The starting station has direct services to Stansted Airport and Norwich
This clue's bugging me. Doesn't this mean the starting station has to be on the line between Peterborough and Ely or it has to be London Liverpool Street? If so, I'm not aware of any HSTs that operate round there except VTEC ones.

Both the start and the end have been mentioned in this game (since #63) not by me, and the correct rare track has been guessed twice

Lets give this a go then;

Clue 1: The origin station has more than 5 platforms
Clue 2: The destination station is electrified
Clue 3: The stock does not travel faster than 75mph
Clue 4: The journey takes over 2 hours
