Protocol demands a following glissade toward the west, so more in hope than anything else,

Bond Street

Now that creates an interesting dichotomy. Should we think of the aristocracy in which case there can only be one other choice of court.... but wait, perhaps the court referred to is one of play (would that be in, or out, I wonder - definitely 'in' according to American thinking) which would lead us in a southerly direction... but there is of course another, so I will play

As tribute to La Mirren and to HM I offer, of course:

A timely yet bold introduction of the inspired double regal move so seldom witnessed at such an advanced stage of the game - not something I would have undertaken myself. I think PERIVALE is probably the best of the very few responses available.

Oh now you've done it! According to my calculations, there are only two ways I can possibly prevent you from reaching MC next stop. If I use the Kline-Hope-Kline Jr. move that's going to get us stuck in the loop for a long time, but the alternative to Willesdon Junction is just so risky I don't think I'd dare try it, even with the anonymity of the internet. Nope. Sorry, it's got to be Dollis Hill.

No. I'm sorry, I was... anticipatory.

My actual move is the rather pedestrian Barbican

hmm.

British public transport and British public etiquette, eh? A bad mix.

Once again, I was waiting for someone else to jump into the fray, and whilst I was busy being so British, the last train on the line out of the loop sped through the station so I have to say....

Dollis Hill.

(sorry)

Oh UT, you so nearly scooped it there. I must say that I've been bowled over by the talent here in the Cellar (though of course I shouldn't have been surprised) both from people whe I knew were bound to be MC experts and from newcomers alike. This game is so enthralling ... the twists and turns, the erudite references to precedent, the asides, sidings and, junctions and points .... just fabulous.
But since Monster has put us through the Dollis Hill double, that does open up the rarely available possibility of taking a swerve round to Hangar Lane ...

...and the swerve curves into the great swoop seldom attempted without grave risk to the following podumes. Seriously though, and without frightening the horses, I am lead to Galleons Reach as a compromise move.

Barking Barking BARKING!

I go by "Barking Toad" sometimes when "Undertoad" is taken. Extra marks to anyone who gets the reference.
