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!

Never change, TFL. Never change. Or actually... do change, so you're actually useful.

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...

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:

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?

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...

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&...
