Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What station is a compound of: a "French" brass musical instrument + a religious building, typically frequented on a Sunday?

Answer: Hornchurch

Located on the District line in the eastern outskirts of Greater London, Hornchurch opened in 1885. Originally served by steam trains, services stopped in 1905 as the line was electrified. It came back into use in 1932 when the District Railway headed east once more. Annually, Hornchurch sees around 2 million entries and exits.
2. Which station, served by no less than four lines, can be formed from: a fell + a door in a fence?

Answer: Moorgate

1865 saw the opening of Moorgate Street station, a name which stuck until 1924 when 'Street' was dropped. With the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Northern lines passing through here, as well as National Rail services, Moorgate sees considerable commuter traffic each year.
3. Heading out to the eastern reaches of London, which station is: a dog making its noise or British slang for crazy + a straight edge of a polygon?

Answer: Barkingside

Barkingside is found on the Hainault loop of the Underground's Central line. Despite its name, it's not part of the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham but the more northerly Borough of Redbridge. The station opened in 1903 with steam-powered Great Eastern Railway services, with electric Central line services superseding them in 1948.
4. Here's two more words to smush together. What station do you get from: Hudson, Botany, Biscay and Bengal, for instance + H2O?

Answer: Bayswater

The Metropolitan Railway Company opened Bayswater station in 1868. It's actually quicker to walk from Queensway station on the Central line to Bayswater than it is to continue on the Central line to Notting Hill Gate and changing for the Circle or District lines (though you wouldn't know this to look at the official Tube Map, due to its proclivity for 45- and 90-degree angles rather than geographical accuracy).
5. Jack the Ripper may be gone, but which station is a compound word formed of: the albumen of an egg + a small place of worship, usually a room within a larger building?

Answer: Whitechapel

Whitechapel opened as a main line station (now part of the London Overground) in 1876, and became a station on the District Railway some 8 years later (which is nowadays the District line of the Underground). Bizarrely, the Underground platforms are actually situated above those of the Overground.
6. Where are we off to now, if you combine: Barbie's original beau + 2000 lbs (US) or 2240 lbs (UK)?

Answer: Kenton

In northwest London on the Bakerloo line, you'll find Kenton station, another station served by both Underground and Overground services. Though the lines run parallel to one another and serve several mutual stations in either direction, Kenton's Underground station had higher passenger numbers than its Overground counterpart in the five years to 2016.
7. All aboard! What station comes about as a result of combining: the place on a golf course where putting occurs + maker of the Model T car?

Answer: Greenford

Located on the branch of the Central line that heads up to Ruislip and its many stations, Greenford opened in the first decade of the twentieth century by GWR. Similar to Kenton, Greenford sees significantly more usage as an Underground station than for National Rail services.

The Underground's first incline lift was installed at Greenford in 2015, replacing the last wooden escalator on the same network.
8. We're almost at our final destination. Where are we if we're at a station whose name is formed of: a supply of something + a deep, vertical shaft, usually filled with water?

Answer: Stockwell

Stockwell marks the southern crossing point of the Victoria and Northern lines. On its opening in 1890 by the City & South London Railway, Stockwell was the terminus of the line. This lasted only a decade, as the first of the line's extensions towards Clapham and further south came into being. In 1971, Victoria line services began passing through Stockwell.
9. A rather regal-sounding stop, what do we get by combining: Elizabeth, Mary and Victoria, for example + inter?

Answer: Queensbury

Opened in 1934 as part of the Metropolitan line, Queensbury was also a Bakerloo line station until 1979 when that particular branch of the Bakerloo switched over the Jubilee line. Though the adjacent Queensbury roundabout is dominated by a large Underground roundel, the entrance to the station is actually across the road.
10. Here's another station, split across four Underground lines. If you combine: the more common name for the bone called the malleus + a craftsman, what do you get?

Answer: Hammersmith

Hammersmith is split amongst two separate stations: one served by Circle and eponymous Hammersmith & City services, and the other by District and Piccadilly trains. This is due to two the Metropolitan and District Railway companies setting up their own stations between 1864 and 1874. Changing between these stations actually requires you to physically exit and cross Hammersmith Broadway to reach the other.
