Except the train from King’s Cross actually goes to Leuchars (for St. Andrews) rather than St. Andrews. Trust me, I know.


#3

St. Pancras has been scaled back I see.
What was it the Western Brothers used to say…

“St George for England!
St Pancras for Scotland!”


#4

This actually narrows down the location of Hogwarts slightly - it’s in the eastern half of The Highlands, otherwise the Hogwarts Express would depart from Euston


#5

Marvelous. Thought provoking. But more useful than showing where the train stations go, would be a map that show were the trains go.

Google Maps tells me originating King’s Cross, but it appears you end up in Euston access by the time you’re done…


#7

Would be improved by googly eyes.


#8

Cannot find destinations on the map corresponding to Necropolis Station. I am disappoint.


#9

On a recent visit, we used Paddington (to visit Bath Spa) and Waterloo (to get to Surbiton where my niece is staying, and Vauxhall where we were staying).

I grew up near NYC, but found Waterloo borderline alarming in its size and busy-ness.

P.S. Am I the only one who keep reading that as “St. Pancreas?”

#11

wildly inaccurate. Not least for missing out Charing X


#12

London’s commuter drainage basins

Fun (if irrelevant) fact: Americans would call those “watersheds”, because Americans think a “watershed” is a basin, rather than a divide.


#13

You beat me to it, matey!


#14

well spotted.


#15

It’s Waterloo.


#16

Adjacent to Waterloo Bridge station, but not identical.
One wonders which additional amenities elevate a 1st-class above a 3rd-class coffin ticket.


#17

Weird. As a non-Londoner I mainly think of the rail network in terms of the West- and East-coast mainlines, although generally I’ve almost exclusively used the West-Coast.


#18

What you meant to type.


#19

Yeah, I fail to see how having mobile train stations can be useful.


#20

The Train was on time, the Station was late. Their performance is measured by late trains, not stations.
