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...

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...

Do we have ideas about the date for this years event? This so I can plan the 2019/20 Random 15 season events which usually fall in mid November and early January
