I have an apology to offer.
In my last teaser, I stated that the location of Leeor had moved
27 miles during its existence. This is not so, it hadn't moved at all; but the problem was in the wording of the clue. It would have been more appropriate to state that the measured distance was 27 miles less, or that the rail mileage was 27 miles less. Or even that that it was 27 rail miles closer, although that could be construed as misleading. I regret the ham-fisted wording, but it was too enticing a piece of information not to use. I should have used it better. Time to get out the hairshirt. Or for a real penance, start up the turntable and play The Very Best of Mantovani
With regard to the to the current teaser, we have a winner. The answer is Coleraine Junction
. In the up direction, the Hamilton-Coleraine Junction section was barely a mile; in the down, the Coleraine Junction-Branxholme section was in the vicinity of 15 miles. I believe that, before the V.R. started culling stations, the distance between Hamilton and Branxholme was the longest in the state between two stations.
Your prize, Hansie13, is that you get to provide us with the next teaser.
