Re: Tube Olympics 2018: Event 2- Mouse

I just read about TfL plans to make Bank branch trains skip Kennington for a few months - I guess this might have an effect on the Mouse Challenge...

Re: Random 15 Round 4.5 - 29th March 2014

Quick update: the pub we went to at the end of this impromptu round, the Bree Louise, is closing at the end of the month. It's a shame, it was a nice pub.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 3

Early Warning At the pub there will be the usual game of darts. But in addition I will be asking for five volunteers to play a new board game that I have designed, based on the Random 15 format. Game should last about 2 hours, so we'll start after the Round 3 results have been read out. I'd like yo...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 3

Am I right in thinking that for this challenge: Any stations where it is necessary to pass through barriers to get from an Underground station to a NR station count as separate stations (Paddington, Victoria, Ealing Broadway etc)? Any stations where it is possible to change from NR to Underground o...

Re: What happens when Oyster PAYG times out?

Thanks for the quick and helpful replies. After a more careful read of some of the stuff I'd skimmed through earlier, it does seem that as long as we have a shedload of cash in PAYG, everything should go smoothly, although it will end up costing quite a bit. And I'm not entirely sure how a refund w...

Re: What happens when Oyster PAYG times out?

One thing to bear in mind is OSIs - there's a full list here (on the Oyster Rail site) . If you make one of these out of station interchanges within the time given, TfL strings your two journeys together into one. This may help the casual A to B traveller, but as the fact these journeys are tied tog...

Re: What happens when Oyster PAYG times out?

If you exceed the Oyster time limit, you're hit with two maximum fares as the system assumes you've touched in, failed to touch out, failed to touch back in again and then touched out - which comes to £10.80 in the off-peak and a whopping £15.60 in the peak. Given a Travelcard is £12.something, this...

Re: Tube Olympics 2018: Schedule of events

Nordic Combined is a lot of fun! Biathlon I find less my cup of tea.
