Re: Eurovision 2019

As BBC Four fell off the air just after the results of Semi Final One came in (can't the BBC do anything right about Eurovision this year? First they give us 3 horrible songs to pick, then Sophie Ellis-Bextor gets sacked from the jury...) I got 8/10 qualifiers correct - did not think Belarus or San ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 3

An interesting set of stations today that provided many personal triumphs for me, and as a result I have to say I was overall not too disappointed, but I do know I could have done even better. After a bit of chaos with Rob's Spoons breakfast we all clambered aboard and rode up the Bakerloo Line to m...

Toilets in the NW corner havent been too bad when I've been there before. Ones on platform at Northwick Park (I think) were the best of the available bunch
I live(d) near there for ages. I can never remember them ever being open!

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

I still haven't decided whether to do this tomorrow or not. I can't get a route quicker than 8hrs, and I'm not sure my bank account will let me do this.

Yeah, probably not.

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

You don't need to start your stopwatch on the first train you take of the day, just when you want to start the attempt. So, assuming you're doing Heathrow to begin with, you don't need to start your stopwatch until you depart Terminal 4, since you'll be going back through Hatton Cross anyway. Which...

Re: Top times: London Trams

Geoff's just posted a 1:36:01 on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzL4cxg4RbU - I do feel as though he should have given Tangy a shout-out given the heavy use of the Explorer Ticket website... :roll:

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

You don't have to get the photo as you pass through, do you? So in theory you could get a photo of (say) Newbury Park as you go past it on a bus and then come back and do it by tube without getting out?
