Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Early start for me today, heading up to Ipswich. I thought I'd left plenty of time, but a points failure part way meant we were over half an hour late. I run/walked across Ipswich and got there just as the briefing was starting, so success! The run was a lot hillier than I expected for that part of ...

Re: Iain's Tram Trials and Tribulations

Another mixed day - I went back to my earlier start, gambling on being able to make the tram behind me after taking out the two Croydon stops with "street" in their name. This was a real gamble, but I nearly made it. I got to Church Street with 90 seconds to run to Centrale, and as I got to the road...

Re: Iain's Tram Trials and Tribulations

I started off a later tram today, which got held up by ticket inspectors (again), so I decided to scout some of the weird runs/buses/teleportations that I'd thought of. Two hours later, I realised my watch was still running and I would only visit the last station on my way home. The outcome was a ne...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

It wasn't! Windy as hell but apart from that really springlike, An absolute gem of a course, and the warm, friendly team. Plus two cakes, the real Cass Castleton and a woman singing show tunes rather breathlessly just behind me. We ended up in the same pub as when we did Ellenbrook, and it wasn't gr...

Re: Iain's Tram Trials and Tribulations

A busy day today, with two attempts. The first had a familiar start from Wimbledon, and the tram fair pelted along, hitting Reeves in 18-19 minutes minutes. I'm going off a slightly earlier tram than my first attempt, making sure I catch the tram I want into Elmers, but today I had to let a couple g...

Re: Tube Challenge 1974

Blake Hall closed in 1981 - I guess a pass through on the EOR would have to do. I believe the owner of the EOR now lives there
