A shunt is one of the three basic move types in Mornington Crescent. At a basic level, a shunt is identical to a move, except that any players currently resting in the target station are moved to an unoccupied station. See also the stationary shunt, which doesn't require an actual move, the chromatic shunt, which alters token or even line colours as well as shifting the targetted player's position, and the transverse shunt, closely related to the straddle.

In most cases, blocked or otherwise impeded players cannot be shunted.

Even novice players should be aware of the novelties, subtleties and the dangers presented by the oblique shunt.
