I don't know what Mordor Central is.

Colloquial term for Birmingham New Street station, as used in the Scary Devil Monastery and possibly also Ye Shedde, and that makes perfect sense to anyone who's ever had the misfortune to change trains there (particularly before the refurbishment).

Preserved for posterity in Hansard courtesy of Tanni Grey-Thompson, via That Nice Mr Paulley.

Tolkein nerds would doubtless point out that Sandwell & Dudley station is more convenient for actual Mordor, but it lacks the Mines Of Moria aesthetic...

An odd aspect of the place I spotted a few years ago is that the maze of shops and Stuff above the station is well-provided with maps. Unfortunately, unless it has been rectified, none of the maps carried the minor feature of a dot with the words "You are here"
