This is usually thought of as a particularly violent sort of shunt, in which the shunting player follows through and drives the shunted player back by several stations (instead of the usual stipulation about moving to the nearest free station).

This manoeuvre was much favoured by Ruttsborough, who gave it its name during a move where he shunted through Green Park on the Piccadilly all the way to Earls Court, and sent his opponent (Arthur Cripplehead) spinning off as far as Osterley.
