Not the move anyone wanted!

Using Antipodean Alternative Rules of 1895 South Kensington via Gloucester Road, or am I being too literal?

Starting at High Street Kensington for a variation of Wibble's 1897 opening.

.... and that throws me comprehensively out of the running (for now at least)- Epping


Bugger. 
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

The boiler is stoked (with tea loaf naturally) ...... onwards via a quick detour along the Thames Path to Cutty Sark !!!!

Ah, interesting. Hmm, well given the reversal of my huff I am left with little option but to dance a hornpipe along to Greenwich
I made a note in my diary on the way over here. Simply says; "Bugger!"

Limehouse you say? As it came from Greenwich I have to assume a counter-clockwise rotation as a clockwise one would (of course) result in a "beggars gambit" (most ungentlemanly).
It does however leave me little outs. Fortunately they extended the jubilee. Bromley-by-bow

(you just wait till cross rail is running. That'll put the wind up the traditionalists. I'll be able to take you all to Romford and there's nothing any of you could do about it)

Harumpf. That's what you think sir! If it weren't for the most recent rule change at the annual player's conference, I wouldn't even accept the DLR to be played (and I still feel decidedly uncomfortable having to have played upon it).

But getting back to the game in hand, I play my copper thruppeny and advance to Mile End.

Hmm, Marylebone is proving to be popular this round. In my (unrelated) pursuit of Mr Rafferty I find myself arriving Baker Street with a saxophone.

I'll play an Octarine counter and go Becontree.
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.
