Preamble: Blah blah blah something about buried treasure, blah blah blah remote and hard to get to, blah blah.
Question: Why wouldn’t you ride the Inaccessible Island Rail?
Forfeits: It’s inaccessible? Who says I wouldn’t? She/he/it hasn’t bought me diner first?
Answer: It’s a bird.

Notes: Living on the deserted Inaccessible Island, this rail is the world’s smallest flightless bird. This topic is also quite interesting because Inaccessible Island is part of the Tristan Archipelago; the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world. Close to Inaccessible Island is Tristan da Cunha which is home to a town named “Edinburgh of the Seven Seas.” The residents of which have their own dialect and the government and factory work shuts down for three weeks for Christmas.

Hi Pongo and welcome. We're about thirteen years too late for the D series I'm afraid, but if you can think of an O connection (oceans, maybe?) it would go on the O series thread.

D will swing back around eventually. When it does I'll be first in line.

It would be nice to think so, but I suspect the team will all be too old and decrepit by the time we reach Z for that to happen.

Must be the R series soon - Road & Rail, maybe?
