Re: London Reconnections 2018 Christmas Quiz

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

So, I hope your royal tangyness will make sure the following stations are removed from the random generator for envelope 2, as I understand it they won't have any NR service on Saturday, according to the works listed on page 1.

Re: All the terminals

There was a challenge to do all Zone 1 NR stations a few years ago. It was a really fun challenge. Results here: http://www.tubechallenge.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2852&start=120#p79208 I don't think it meets your precise definition, but it's similar.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5
