Re: Tube Olympics 2018: Event 5- Full Network

I finish work at midday - wonder if a route finishing 6am the next day would be legit! As long as you keep your watch running I guess you can finish anytime before the final results are revealed at the pub on Saturday... Would have to stop for parkrun too! If you time it right you could run from Ed...

Re: Sadiq Khan(t) blocks CRL funding

Quite right too. The benefit of this scheme to people who actually live in London is fairly negligible, and TfL should not be expected to pay for it.

There is an entrance in Turnmill Street as well, although I think that is only open in the peaks.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I don't think you have to visit any station twice? It may involve some implausible runs, but there is always a theoretical alternative to doubling back. Eg you could start Amersham - Chalfont - Chesham - run to Chorleywood to avoid passing through Chalfont a second time.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 3

The TfL track closures PDF http://content.tfl.gov.uk/track-closures.pdf shows a closure Baker Street - Hammersmith / High Street Ken on the subsurface lines It looks like the TfL Rail closure is only on the Sunday. Surprised they bother running a shuttle just from Liverpool Street to Stratford when ...

The TOC (Tube Olympics Committee) has concluded that London (UK) will be the host city for the 2018 event.
I love the diversity of cities we have for this. I wonder where it will be held next year ... :lol:
Don't be silly, everyone knows there is no Olympics in 2019!

Re: TfL Release Raw Timetable Data

I'm afraid I haven't done any updates to this since 2010! It looks like the timetable data is now being released in a different format, so my old macro wouldn't work anyway.

Re: GOBLIN to close for eight months (June 2016)

Although because of the prestigious R15 Championship happening today, TfL have kindly agreed to keep it open until 1900 tonight, just in case it might come in useful.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I know it's resurrecting a long dead thread, but I have to pass on this fact I recently discovered... in the form of a question. Name the two people in history who have won a Nobel Prize and had a songwriting credit on a record that has reached number one in the British chart. Bob Dylan is the obvi...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2017 -16th Dec - Stonebridge Park

Even before the match is fine, the station will be busy, but it will be easy enough to get out and take a picture if necessary. The busiest time is after the match, but hopefully everyone should have already visited it before 5pm.
