Re: Historic Photo Quiz

Thanks to everybody for your interest thus far. For those of you who don't know, I know curate the JR James Town Planning Archive I'd be willing to bet that none of us knew that. Those of you who still have me on Facebook/Twitter might have noticed me warbling on about it, that's all Neil! :lol: (Al...

Historic Photo Quiz

Hello everybody, it's been a hell of a long time since I've posted here, but I'm still keeping up with what you're all doing! For those of you who don't know, I now curate the JR James Town Planning Archive - a selection of nearly 4,000 images that belonged to one of Britain's foremost Town Planners...

Not a photo quiz - but a video quiz!

As some of you may already be aware, Coldplay's music video for their new single 'Paradise' features a number of shots on the Underground. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1G4isv_Fylg I know the shot of the elephant running into the station is at Belsize Park station, as is the ...

Re: Sheffield Supertram

I did the rare side years ago when there was a regular service which went from Herdings to Meadowhall without diverting to the Cathedral as it does now. I think this service only ran for a brief time when this part of the network first opened - it may even have been before the last section from Shal...

The Football League Grounds of Greater London Tube Challenge

With the incredible rise of AFC Wimbledon that today has seen a fan's owned club return to the Football League and secure the crowning glory of 5 promotions in just 9 seasons, can I propose that the London Football Grounds Challenge of old be re-invented? Before I had become involved in Tube Challen...

A European Treasure Hunt!

Hi there everybody, I'm afraid I've taken the tube challenging thing to a whole new level... This summer I'm competing against 200 other fellow Sheffield University students in a Europe-wide Treasure Hunt, which is the Largest Treasure Hunt in the World . After assembling at Brussels Midi on the 13t...

Re: TransPennine Pub Crawl II (2nd Sept 2011)

I don't know what time people were planning to arrive in Manchester having come from the South, but it may be simplest to meet at Stockport station and then nip over the Pennines to Sheffield as pre-curser to the main event starting in Huddersfield. You can then catch a Pacer (you may need a drink t...

Re: OYSTERCARDS - THE ONLY THREAD!

Assuming that this has gone successfully, I am led to believe that this won't be the first limited edition Oyster Card, however I know no more details.

Re: TransPennine Pub Crawl II (2nd Sept 2011)

You really should make a (relatively minor) diversion to the fantastic Sheffield Tap, located on Platform 1 of Sheffield Station. Since opening 12 months ago the Tap has won many awards, locally, regionally and nationally, not only the incredible restoration of the former waiting room but also the p...

Re: Birmingham April 2nd

Meself, GKR and Adham teamed up for this and managed to win, with Alasdair also competing and finishing 3rd. We possibly could have had time to visit Earlswood too, however as non of us knew the station we were unsure if we could make the return train without being stranded for an hour - especially ...

Re: R15 Round 5 suggestion

We do have a time limit challenge already, (whose name I can't remember) and that's the most stations from the entirety of the Tube, and not just the most stations from a list of 20. Now you've produced this list James, I like the 15 from 20 concept even more! In this example (assuming an Aldgate Ea...

Re: R15 Round 5 suggestion

I believe that the 15 out of 20 challenge would probably have the same degree of difficulty, however the difficulty moves (back) from the independent scrutiniser to the challenger themselves. Do we really want a tube challenge to transfer from a definitive test of speed, skill, and mental aptitude t...

Re: R15 - Rounds 4, 5 & 6

I'm very keen for a 12 noon start if that's OK as I need to be in Guildford for 6pm at the absolute latest. Am I correct in thinking that this round is destined to be a "twist free" Random 15?

Re: R15 Championship 2010/11 - Round 3 - 12th February 2011

Beside Andi, what were the other routes?

This set of stations was quite a nasty one - in some ways I'm glad I couldn't make it!
