The first Xmas quiz rounds seems to have been, frankly, embarrassingly easy. It lasted only a couple of hours before a full set of answers were received. For the record, the answers are:-
For a bonus point, name the 1950 movie which uses the 2’0″ Chicago Tunnel Railway as a key part of the film climax?
7:- Film. Which rather bewildering 2011 film sees the hero repeatedly making the same journey on a Chicago commuter train?
8:- Song. A plaque on the waiting room wall at Widnes station commemorates the writing of which Simon and Garfunkel song?
9:- Book (and TV serial and radio play). By Neil Gaimen, this book saw the hero meeting people who took their names from London place names, including many Tube stations. The TV serial included a sequence shot on the 2’0″ gauge Post Office Railway. What is the name of the book?
10:- Book (and now film). My namesake was a RailwayMan. Where did he work and who was his involuntary employer?
Answers to here – and a happy Christmas to everyone reading.
