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: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

No chance of being available, I'm afraid. Hoping to be able to do the Xmas parks, though.

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?

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

Can someone please find the original rules from Park Challenge I to stop the arguments, thank you Well, having skim-read the threads this never came up until Tufnell Park in 2015. Honestly, GU, it's probably just up to you to make an executive decision. You don't have to go by last year's ruling. I...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

I had actually earmarked the date for Round 2 as potentially something I might want to get involved in but then realised I have Abi Sakande coming to cricket training.

Could one train travel the entire tube network?

I’ve had a bit of thought about this and I think there’s only one thing preventing this, W&C aside Take a 1973 stock Piccadilly line train. It can obviously do the whole Piccadilly line. It can also do the entire Met Line thanks to the Rayners Lane points. Therefore, it can also do the Circle and H&...

Cause for a 'commemorative start' at one of the Crossrail stations? Peter has already broached this idea on the Facebook group and we are discussing how it wou...

Re: Zone 1 Challenge Cup 2018- Friday 1st June.

A bit of shame as I would have liked to have been there for at least one of the two events but unfortunately University work is preventing me from doing so.
