23) Which is the oldest mainline London terminal and what was the date of opening?
Technically, with how the question is written, the answer is Spa Road (though arguable if this was a mainline London terminus or just a London terminus. Though I suspect you are actually looking for London Bridge, which is the oldest London terminus that is still used.

I can't get the give without cheating, but would say about mid 1830s for both.

EDIT:
Oops I'm too late with this!, sorry

Do you fancy dropping a year for the opening of London Bridge for the point?

22 - Central Line, West Ryslip to Epping, though I think it may be possible to go all the way back to West Ryslip at certain times of the day around the loop at Fairlop.
I haven't checked the current WTT, but it would be unusual for a train to go all the way round the loop and back again. (Before 1992 TS, trains were "handed" so doing that would end up the wrong way round, so everything using the loop reversed at either Hainault or Woodford.) If there was one,

I would normally have answered Cockfosters to Cockfosters via Heathrow T4, which is a lot further, but I don't know if anything is going round the loop in service while T4 is shut.

But couldn't I stay on the same train all day even when it reverses direction? In which case there's no good answer because it will depend on exact timetable details. I would guess one of the Met trains doing Chesham runs.

Or, if I want to twist the question beyond all reason (after all, doing that sort of thing is my job), the longest journey I can think of that goes between two stations on the LU system is King's Cross to Inverness, which goes through King's Cross St.Pancras and Finsbury Park. The question didn't say it had to use the LU platforms!
