You can't really have a mainline south though, it would hit the sea after 60 miles. But the extensiveness of the network to the south is far greater than to the north, every other lamp-post seems to have its own station, which is why travelling in from Leatherhead is such a bind; you must choose to live in an area with a better connection, such as Godalming. Of course SWT, then SWR have done their best to make that shite too. I shouldn't be too mean, I saw Alan Partridge in Watford and had a summer-long fling with Lovely Lucy back in 1991, so fairly fond memories. Just being so close to the town of Bushy puts me off the place, what kind of town is called Bushy ffs?
