Fishy Circumstances

Mornington Crescent

This afternoon at Picocon, members of the three con teams, Enterprise, Serenity, and Galactica, competed in a competent, but ultimately rather pedestrian game of Mornington Crescent. Their plays were generally straightforward ones, primarily using major interchanges, and only twice venturing outside Zone 1 stations. The only real contention was when someone tried to play a long-closed station (not accepted) and when someone else tried to play Queensway, which is currently closed for reconstruction (accepted). All of which leads me to wonder a few things:

Which is the least-played station?
Is it permissible to play DLR stations under many of your favorite rule sets?
Are any rule sets outré enough to include Thameslink stations?
