More Metro Momentos

The Knowledge

There's a little "off the wall" quiz in today's Metro with a "how well do you know London"
Diamond Geezer stylie. Obviously, they had to throw in some questions on the tube and if you'd been studying the 50 fascinating facts about the London Underground from my main site, you'd know the answers to the following questions:

1. Which real life Tube station is a model for the fictional Walford East in EastEnders? (OK, so it's not on my fascinating facts page but it's on Hywel Williams site, referenced from my tube celebs page)

2. As they (sic) appear on the Tube map, only one Underground station has none of the letters of the word 'mackerel' in it. Which one?

3. Only two Tube stations have all vowels in them. Which two?

4. Where in 1924 was Thelma Ursula Beatrice Eleanor the first person born?

Well er, durr. Except she wasn't actually called Thelma Ursula Beatrice Eleanor it was simply an over excited newspaper, and the urban legend stuck. She's actually called Marie Cordery or Eleanor Ashfield depending on which other publication you believe.
