Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

I think that was for Round 5 (as we will be finishing at Greenwich)? That was my understanding as well as it is easy to get to from Greenwich (due to its close proximity to Southwark/Waterloo East/Blackfriars station) Correct, we will be using Prince William Henry only for round 5 (as per reasons a...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 3

The new London Connections map is very much available in its usual printed leaflet form, current issue has a light blue cover. You will have more of a chance of obtaining a copy at a National Rail station, I have seen them readily displayed in timetable racks at several larger stations. I grabbed a ...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

I battled through and managed to complete in a time of 08:26:22. I deliberately timed my start carefully to get the Tube to Holloway Road so as not to have a long wait for the bus to Tufnell Park. Some good changes followed, including a 3 minute in/out at Belsize Park (train to train) and immediate ...

Any photo is fine, I have never stopped there long enough to actually visualise and memorise what's there!
As I am normally running to/from there, I often take a photo of one of the bus stops flags near the entrance to Hyde Park Corner subway.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

9th: Michael Churchill: 14 stations completed in 06:00:20 at Drayton Park I'm a little confused by this one - how, given a 6 hour time limit, has a time outside of this limit been accepted? Or was a dispensation given for its closeness to the limit? Doesn't impact me in the slightest, but just foun...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

The current situation with the weekend GOBLIN is fluid. Basically, the new fangled electric trains that were meant to be fully operational by now are still having problems and have been sent back to Bombardier several times for rectification. So the two coach diesels have to soldier on until the ele...

Re: CiN 2018 - 16th November

I met them at Edgware at around 01:30 this morning for a food/drink supply stop. They had to re-route around the Baker Street area due to the Circle line platforms being closed due to flooding and thus couldn't connect to the deep level lines that they had been intending. An OSI had to be used to ge...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

It's possible that, for example, Liverpool Street (LU) will be in the first envelope and Liverpool Street (NR) will be in the second envelope, so you'll have to go back. In that case, the first time around you must arrive or depart from Liverpool Street on an Underground train (Central, H&C, Met or...
