Correct.  The "round and round" indicates we need to throw the letters of "almond" round and round - it's an anagram, and Maldon is the correct answer.

Your turn MOM.

Thank you, now for something different...


A mathematical constant mixed with a fizzy drink.[/b]

I reckon this might be Colac.  Cola plus c (being the speed of light).

No, that isn't the one I'm thinking of!

Not sure if this is in Victoria or not, but I will submit my guess just in case:

Pi [a mathmatical constant] + Mixed drink [Long Island Iced Tea] = Pylong
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Having just checked the rules and found I can provide a new answer once my first is declared incorrect, how about this.  If adding the speed of light to cola wasn't correct, what about adding pi?

I like the idea of a LOng Island Tea, yummm, however

Pi cola

gets the point.


Over to you, DB

Here we go - shouldn't be too hard:

Horsham

Far too easy ... Horsham it is.

It's a bit like ping-pong - back over the net to you, MOM.

Let's see if this can make it overnight?

This station can be found in a rocky creek crossing

The first thing that came to my mind was Stony Crossing, but I don't think that's right.  It's not in Victoria either, although it was a VR station.

Well, to open up proceedings with this clue,
My guess is:
Inverloch
  B 67 Chief Commissioner

Location: Central Gippsland

This station can be found in a rocky creek crossing


Hmmm! A few possibilities here. But I'm going to have to go with Stratford seeing as how I live there.   Very Happy

Rocky = Strata; Creek crossing = ford

Well it made the overnight distance....

All 3 are incorrect...

OK then - next guess is Stoneyford down on the Warrnambool line, in the Stoney Rises.  The only problem is that no such station exists in my 1964 WTT, so it's possible it's a locality with a station, in which case I've blown another guess   Laughing

Well it exists on th 1940's resource map I 've used. I've taken it as being a station, whether it was manned or whatever who knows?

I think it's all fair game if it's shown on a VR Map and inside Victoria.


Therefore you the winner!

over to you...

I would be interested to see where the station was, seeing as there's no where clear enough down there to put it in the immediate area, unless it's Peronyalk? (Sorry about Spelling)

I'm not sure if I can clip & paste this into this thread...[I have the bitmap].

Can anyone advise me how I can do this?

Briefly, it was located between Pomborneit & Pirron Yallock

edit: It was deleted from the maps in the 60's. I should have the 1:63K at home if anyone wants more precise details...
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

MOM, first you need to convert the bitmap into a jpg, and then you need to upload it onto a web server. If you have lots of patience you can use the Railpage gallery for this.  Then you paste the link into a posting.  Alternatively you could simply point people to the VR map here http://www.railpage.org.au/maphistory/1950.pdf and tell them to find Stoneyford on the Warrnambool line, a few stations beyond Colac.

Next Question - should be real easy...

quick, twice.

May not be as easy as it appears....

Only place that comes to mind is Won Wron  [run run].

Won Wron is a creative guess, but not what I was looking for.  What's the best hint to give ...  hmm ... look to a different language.
