Well, following Oliver's 1945 Wartime Omnibus Edition, 38th Variant, I call Holborn by way of London Heathrow and taxicab.

Utilizing the rulebook rewritten for the 1968 Olympics (v1.2), I can say Pantitlan in the Mexico City metro system

Hmm.

Now, looking through the thread it seems that main line stations are still wild, and that Knid only applies below the diagonal - am I correct?

Assuming so for the moment, I will play Wien Westbahnhof.

oops, unfortunately, Locomotionfan, that act was made null by The July Accord, Article 7, Section 5.6, Bylaw A.459.99.1, which stated that no move may be made from a station on the western side of a german speaking city to Mornington Crescent, UNLESS the station was translated to English first, so that move is void.

That being said, Shepherd's Bush on the Central Line, via the Chunnel, due to Lombarde's Inverse Matrix rule of 1785.

Using the Abridged Schrödinger-Heisenburg Set of Rules, I move to either Hackney Wick or Burnt Oak, but you cannot check both with 100% certainty at the same time, so I could be at either one.

According to the 2008 New Johnson Revised Edition, updated for modern players, I hereby take this opportunity to be the first to proceed to Wood Lane, a station only recently opened.
