Re: London Overground Challenge

Hi there,

I was thinking of completing the challenge in early May... from what I can read, the Goblin won't close until June.

Does that sound correct?

Re: London Overground Challenge

Thanks guys...

I presume the best Travelcard to buy will be the Zones 1-9 + Watford Junction?

Am thinking of starting the challenge at Battersea Park on the 06.18 to get it out of the way early on.

Re: London Overground Challenge

Thanks for the tips guys! How long do you imagine it will take? I was thinking around 14-15 hours for a novice.

London Overground Challenge

Hi there, Having completed the Tube Challenge on a number of occasions now, I am going to try and tackle the London Overground Challenge. Slightly easier I think, and less time consuming. Just wondering, does anyone have any tips and advice on the best places to start and finish, and any other tips ...

Times between tube stations

Hi there,

I was just wondering if there is a way of finding out distances, 'as the train flies' between stations on the London Underground network?

I just thought it could be interesting to see how many miles one travels in a day when doing the Tube Challenge.

Fifth attempt, second completion

Hi there, After finishing the tube challenge last June in a rather slow time of 20 hours, four minutes and four seconds, I managed to shave almost two hours off my time during an attempt on September 25 last. I started at Heathrow T4 at 05:02, and finished at Amersham at 23:17. I did this by taking ...

Tuffnell Park

Hi there, I'm taking another stab at the Tube Challenge on July 31. I was just wondering, with Tufnell Park station closed, does the Northern Line train still pass through the station, albeit not allowing passengers on or off? I appreciate with this station closed, I will not be able to say I have d...

Re: A lazy Full Network Route

Hi, Also worth mentioning, on my route on Friday, when I arrived at Morden station I took a bus down to South Merton station, and then took the FCC train to Wimbledon from there. This connection can be a bit hit and miss as the train is only every 30 minutes, but it is a handy one if you can make it...

Second tube challenge attempt

Hi there, I'm delighted to say that I have completed all 270 stations on the tube at my second attempt. I did the challenge last Friday, June 6, starting at Heathrow T4 at 05:02 and ending at Amersham at 00:59 (actually a little bit later since the final train was delayed). Clearly I was not going f...

My first attempt 14/03/14

Hi there, I tried to do the "lazy" tube challenge set by theOrangeOne on this board earlier this month, from Heathrow T4 to Amersham. Unfortunately, I was two stations short of the 270, missing Amersham and West Harrow. The tube from 05:02 from Heathrow T4 seemed to leave on time to Heathrow T123. D...
