Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 5

Well, I'm pretty sure Kat and I were the last to go through the barriers (along with [Edward?] at Green Park), as we took the time to map all the stations and come up with a vague plan. Edward followed us down to the Jubilee line, but he went North, and we went South. We wouldn't see anyone else for...

Last call for Steam on the Underground!

Hi all, Just a quick one for those who aren't aware that tickets are currently quickly selling for steam railtours on the 22nd and 23rd of June: https://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/whats-on/events-calendar/heritage-vehicles-outings?fbclid=IwAR1XnK-YQz9rjaoiC-60ZPumYsN6yfwz3y2h2Aga9nYp34W1ha6bNKfhlp8 TfL are ...

I'm guessing there's a typo in Alex and Kat's final time?
That's correct! As the positions would suggest, we did actually match Hugo and Andrew C's time.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

I would say the blanket '2 minutes for changing' is a pretty poor approximation. It isn't too bad if you consider that it may average out over a challenge, but I think it becomes an issue at places like changing from Northern to H&C at Kings Cross; it takes a minute to do the change at speed and the...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

Well, Simon & I were hoping for an improvement on last year's opening round, but alas we only managed a matching 10th place performance. We followed everyone Westbound from Cannon Street to Blackfriars , then returned, again with a lot of others, back to Cannon Street before hopping across to Bank, ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

A good day for Simon, Kat & I, teaming up with Hugo to give us our best finish of this season so far. We knew Mornington Crescent was a no brainer, and due to Kat's incapacitation and Saturday footfall, we knew that making the 30s connection at Camden Town was unlikely, so we waited on the platform ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 4

Not very much interesting to say for myself and my Dad's entry: We knew from pre-planning that if anything South of Ladbroke Grove came up like say, Hammersmith , we would cover those first. So down to Hammersmith we went, which given the 6 minute wait others complain of for a Northbound, seemed to ...
