Each week, for the last 77 weeks, we've created a new area guide, celebrating areas from Tottenham to Blackheath and Kilburn to Penge. And in this democratic age, no local feature would be complete without your savvy suggestions.

And each week, almost without fail, some self-appointed wag makes the same HILARIOUS quip. Ho ho ho! So to demonstrate Swift's First Law in action – namely that haters are indeed incapable of not hate hate hating – we bring you the phenomenon that we've come to know as... 'The Train Out Of There.'
