These are Light Rail systems that have various bra...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

My thoughts on the post challenge meet up venue. I agree about the drink prices creeping up, it seems every time we go there the price has increased but I believe on par with other pubs in the area (we are in Central London after all) although saying that I can make a pint last the whole session! Ho...

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

As stated above, I am more than guilty of using acronyms almost flippantly in conversation forgetting that people may not understand what I'm on about. The worst is when the same acronym can mean different things - for example CFD in my job could mean: Computational Fluid Dynamics Customer Facing D...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

The official results of round 1 of the 2019/20 Random 15 Championship held on Saturday 22nd September 2019. This was the Champion's Twist round and therefore last season's champion David Edwards gave us the following: LU, DLR, LO and DLR, Zones 1 and 2 and that you were NOT allowed to cross the Tham...

Sorry about the delay, we just took the dog for a walk. Column A hidden now.
Time to generate some stations but I'm afraid as it is in zone 4, Barking will not feature!

Re: Generator failure?

Thanks for the extra input, I believe the station list is now correct and column A can be hidden again.

Re: Generator failure?

Thanks Tangy I've added Farringdon (doh!) I've changed West Hampstead (NR) to West Hampstead Thameslink I've made Limehouse one entry, but I just used the stations as listed on the generator site and that has the distinction there. Limehouse isn't a station I frequent that often, I may need to pay ...

Re: Generator failure?

Very goode but a couple of comments/omissions Farringdon is open for Thameslink services so should be included. West Hampstead Thameslink should be written out in full, to avoid confusion with the Overground station (LO is part of the NR network of operators, as is Thameslink). I believe Limehouse i...

Re: Cannon Street Run XIV - Ye Olde Bilge Mouse - Thursday 19th Sept

I concur with the Bakerloo being terrible, my first change at Embankment onto the Bakerloo cost me at least 6 minutes, as the first train that came was out of service and did not stop. The next finally rolled in after another 3-4 minutes full and standing (the busiest Bakerloo train I have seen a lo...

Top Times: UK light rail

I am looking to expand my Explorer Ticket top times league tables to include other light rail system challenges from around the UK. I know there are attempts/records made for Manchester Metrolink, Sheffield Supertram and Tyne & Wear Metro but is there any attempts for Nottingham Tram? Has anyone att...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Do the Moorgate terminators from the East use a rare crossover then? Judging on previous experience, it is an out of service shunt via the crossover at the west end of the platforms (no rare track for passengers). Although this engineering work is likely to do with the new SSL signalling works so t...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Have a lot of the closures changed now for this date as is showing very different on TFL website? Those were the closures listed on the TfL website when the initial post was made but seems it has changed and the District main line is now unaffected. It is all do with the sub surface re-signalling p...

So what is the actual Waterloo station that is in the R15 draw LU of NR?
Waterloo (LU) will be the "start station" for R15 generator purposes and be one of the 15 challengers would need to visit.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

If it's not one of the 15, I guess you have the option of starting by crossing the river non-rail straight away, with the choices of Westminster, Hungerford (Golden Jubilee) and Waterloo bridges close by. You do have the option to do this in any case as the rules state you do NOT need to depart the...
