Re: Birmingham R15

I think it would be better to just stick to the area covered by the ticket and avoid the complications/expense of extra tickets. Will you include Bordesley in the draw? While it does have one train on Saturdays, if it was selected in the list, it would probably mean everyone having very similar rout...

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I don't think the line necessarily needs to go through the exact centre of the Earth, although it will probably go quite close to the centre. A line between two high mountains that does not pass through the centre might be longer than a line between two lower points that are exactly antipodal.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I think it would be a straight line from the top of a mountain to the top of another mountain. So the question is basically asking where the longest line of sight on the Earth is (assuming perfect conditions).

Re: Birmingham R15

I'm interested. Is there a full list of stations - the website isn't very clear. It looks like the ticket is only valid as far as Kidderminster, not Worcester? Is the Redditch line included?

Andrew's been digging a tunnel for months so he can sneak into the prison and get a cheeky extra parkrun ticked off!

Re: Another proposed attempt

The train that should form the 0855 from Epping (0727 Ruislip Gardens - Epping 0847), is diverted to Hainault via Woodford instead. It appears this is so the Sandite train can run to Epping and back so it is leaf fall related.

Re: Snake Challenge - The Return

You can either do

1. Northern TCR to Warren Street, Vic Warren Street to KXSP
2. Northern TCR to Euston, Vic Euston to KXSP
3. Northern TCR to Euston, Northern Euston to KXSP

Same stations whichever way you go.

Another option is to start at Hyde Park Corner or Green Park then you would be out of the area before the main crowds arrive.
