A manoeuvre attributed to [Herbert Turner]? (1880-1945), this involves creating as many token stacks of ascending weight as you possibly can, and then striling between all of them with minimum line velocity. In properly planned cases, the bottommost stack in the strile will collapse, creating a harsh rift at the source station. In recent years, Turner's Declension has been employed to devastating effect on the DLR, leading to the IMCS considering a withdrawal in mid-1996; however, their 1997 ruleset revisions contained no measures against the use of Turner's Declension and it is widely believed they now accept its use in this way. Officially, though, the true verdict remains undecided.
