How many (current National Rail) termini have you visited?  Quiz / question inspired by a "how many of these places have you been to" quiz that came up over Christmas ... it will be interesting to see how many places some of us have been.   No prizes here - membership is welcome even if you have never been to a railway terminus!

I have added into the poll code a report telling you how many votes you have cast in the poll - it will be on the bottom of the list of votes once you review after submitting.  So you can get your result and tell us.  I have stopped short of adding code to give a league table.

There are some questions as to what qualifies as a terminus. I have left out stations which are termini but also have underground or low level through platforms, I have left out seasonal termini too. I hope I have not missed too many ...

Over the years most of them, Paisley Canal was not a terminus when I passed through on the footplate of a black 5, and the line that now stops at Tweedbank was traversed behind a Peak, both in the mid-1960s. At that time the Balloch line carried on to Balloch Pier.

I've been to two thirds of them; Paisley Canal on a passage to Kilmacolm in a multiple unit in it final year(s), Balloch also on my way from the pier station - I was due up there again to the RailFuture Scotland AGM (Annual General Meeting) on Maid of the Loch, but that was sadly cancelled; I had been looking forward to that too.  Other cases are interesting, for example I have been to Uckfield but not in its current guise as a terminus short of what was a level crossing.

Falling back off to sleep during the night (having set up the quiz when the forum was quiet, I found myself musing as to whether we might speculate as to an additional ten terminus stations to add to the list with a controlled series of re-openings over the next decades.  But then I found myself looking at a reduction of the list as some of these stub ends that used to be through lines become through services again.

128 for me, although I'm a bit confused about Becontree, which I know as a non-terminus tube station?

Should have read "Braintree" - sorry ... will go back and fix database entry!

If it's current termini then Bradford Exchange should be Bradford Interchange. Exchange was a bit further north I went there behind steam in th 60s.

Darn it!   There was bound to be the odd one ...  at this point I am NOT going to edit it in as it would bias the voting - footnote onto the results along with others that might come to light as being missed. Nor am I going to reset the votes and have you all start again.

Now that's one that can be (and just has been) corrected without upsetting the voting.

All of them, although Paisley Canal was passed through on my way to Kilmacolm in 1981 shortly before closure

In which case 129 for me on that list (+ Hampton Court, and no doubt some other missed ones)

Just the 58 for me - although I cheated a bit with Balloch as it was Balloch Pier and Balloch Central when I went there way back when!
