so - if I take a train to Knightsbridge, exit through the barriers, & go shopping in Harrods - then I have to start my return journey from a different station, or my visit doesn't count? :?

In that example, you've at least got out of the train & walked between the platforms, so it seems to me that's more than a simple pass through. But you haven't used the escalators, gone through the barriers, or ventured above ground, so t...

Trying to work out what consitiutes a "visit" is a nightmare. Here's one simple idea. A station may only be counted as "visited" if the following two conditions have been met. 1. You arrived at and/or departed from the station on a train AND 2. If you arrived by train, you did not depart from the st...

I can remember travelling on the tube in 1965. GBP 54 was a lot of money then; the only way I can imagine spending that much on fares in a day would be to take an awful lot of taxis. The fare structure was different. 10/- (50p) would buy you a "Blue Rover" ticket, which was roughly equivalent to a Z...

Just returned from a week's hiking holiday in Ellmau, Austria, home of the Hartkaiserbahn , one of the longest funicular railways in the world. Only 39 euros buys a week's pass for this, eight cable cars, and four chairlifts. Several of them are linked, and there is also a (free) Kaiserjet bus runni...
