Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

You may have spoken too soon - it looks like the RMT still plan to strike on the DLR that weekend. No doubt, using the disruption to the Marathon as their bargaining chip. Bugger that may screw up our parkrun plans, please let me know if you hear anything definite... If DLR is closed it's still onl...

My son and I will do our first FNC attempt just after Easter this year, on Tuesday 4 April.

4 April is actually a Wednesday, so It's unclear which day was intended.

Milton Keynes parkrun runs alongside a miniature railway track too- but trains don't operate during parkrun times.
Fortunately the trains at Bognor also don't run during parkrun times, because the parkrun course crosses the track several times.

If anybody ever fancies Oxford, they also have a miniature railway. Are there any more?
Netley Abbey has one.

Eastney Juniors has a small miniature railway (if that makes sense). Zoom in on the course map and you'll see it.

Re: 60+ Card Challenge

Congratulations Nigel. That's some dedicated traveling.

I'm thinking particularly that there are several NR stations with limited services that required some planning to ensure they were visited.

Re: Tube Olympics 2018: Event 5- Full Network

I don't think NIght Tube helps you get a fast route, but it can help get a completion - just plan to finish on Night Tube lines.

Remember too that if you're using a One Day Travelcard your last journey must start before 4:30 am.

Re: Stations List

You can generate a full list using http://www.challengegenerator.co.uk/

Click "Start Here", then tell it you want Underground stations, all zones 1-9, and 270 of them.

The order will be random, but tube stations don't really have an order anyway.
