Rough guess £32
@MildredM realised my error now I've had a chance to warm up. Is it ok to guess again so early?

Really?

 

6 x coffees at £2 (£12) gets you a free drink plus an extra sticker so 7 drinks plus 1 sticker

Multiply this by three and you have 21 drinks and three stickers at £36

 

Purchase 3 more drinks @£6 (24 drinks in total) and you get the three stickers plus the remaining 3 stickers means you get another free drink making 25 drinks in total @ £42 outlay.

 

Revel away

The only thing I can see that would change it would be if the first drink of the initial 6 drinks was a freebie

 

Ive gone through it again and I'm probably missing something really simple


a grinder a lever and some beans

Unless you don't actually need to spend any money, you just need a lot of free stickers from other customers.

 

Or it's £42 :-)

The first ticket is indeed 6 x coffees at £2 (£12) plus an extra sticker but every ticket after that only costs 5 x coffees at £2 (£10) plus sticker due to the sticker from the free shot taking up 1 space.

The other answer of cause is that it's a trick question as I'm pretty sure McD's is the only place that gives out stickers (as apposed to stamps) & none of us would be seen dead ordering 25 coffees from them. ;)

It was cheaper than Isambard Kingdom Brunel's more comfortable broad gauge.

The time travel conspiracy theorists would like you to believe it's so that the space shuttle could fit through the train tunnels.

Keep guessing! I didn’t know and guessed it was so you couldn’t lay across both lines at once (unless you were tall)!

In reality it's alot more pragmatic than a safety concern but I won't spoil the fun for others. :)

It was the same width as the train wheels of the time?:confused:

 

It would have been a bit rum if they weren’t!
