Also Streatham Common and Norbury are closed. Southern trains into Victoria are either diverted to London Bridge or running via Crystal Palace.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

I think it would be a good idea for everyone to note down the time they reach station 14, particularly on this round, as it is possible if a particularly nasty set of stations come up that nobody might visit all 15 in the time limit!

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

Obviously it depends on the stations, but I think it should be enough most of the time. You have to draw a line somewhere and six hours seems long enough for a challenge. Even now, it may well be nearly 8pm before people get back to the pub depending on where they finish. In fact it might be better ...

Re: Status of London Overground at Richmond

If you were being very pedantic, you could argue that as platform 3 cannot be used by LU (due to no fourth rail), any visit to Richmond that used platform 3 was invalid. However I do not think it is sensible to go into that level of detail, for a start if you were to get on a train at Kew Gardens, t...

Re: 384 bus route

TfL are proposing to reroute the 384 bus so it would take a more direct route from High Barnet to Cockfosters, and also to extend it to Edgware at the other end.

SWR guards were on strike yesterday which will have caused the much reduced service.

Is TfL Rail included in the second envelope? (it is a separate category in the generator)

You should make your own parkrun. Just run up and down the corridors at Green Park a few times and you'll soon get to 5km!

Re: Could one train travel the entire tube network?

There has never been a connection to the Northern line at Tufnell Park, it would be a very steep gradient if it existed! There used to be a connection from the Goblin to Kentish Town NR which I think is what you are looking at. However there is a connection between Northern and Piccadilly at King's ...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December

Stonebridge, Canons, Belsize, Woodside, Tufnell, Royal, Moor, Elm, Wimbledon and Newbury have been used so far. Maybe we should try a zone 1 start this year to be different.
