Re: Another proposed attempt

The latest Central Line timetable on https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publicatio ... timetables was dated 2016 and shows the 0855 from Epping, so as far as I know there has been no official timetable change.

Welsh?
Yes, Welsh is the third most-used language in Wales.

Polish is second!

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

I think there's pros and cons both ways. On the pro side, it's nice and central and we have a good relationship with them. On the cons side, that back room's quite cramped for 20+ people, especially when playing darts (!) - it would be nice if more of us could sit down after a 4-6 hour Challenge - a...

Re: Another proposed attempt

I'm in a similar situation - I think I've found the optimal start and the optimal finish, but I'm 17 minutes too long in the middle (the most optimal Hainault Loop doesn't get me back to HSK in time for the Olympia train).

Re: Walk The Tube 2019

The challenge is to visit the stations on the network - therefore visiting a station by a different train counts provided it uses the Tube platforms (hence visiting Olympia on the Overground does NOT count!)

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Running wasn't really necessary though (at least not for the river crossing) as a lot of the challengers crossed the river by bus.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

What a daft twist. I made my own special protest on the way back by crossing the Thames 4 times by rail. :lol: I actually thought it was quite a nice twist. I've never used a boat on an R15 before, and I'm not aware of anyone else having done so previously so I may be the only person to have ever d...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

Another not terribly successful challenge from me. I'd been in two minds about taking part at all given that some of my ankle problems had been flaring up again recently, but flushed with Thursday's success in the Mouse, I decided to give it a go. Unfortunately I managed to tread awkwardly on someth...

Re: Cannon Street Run XIV - Ye Olde Bilge Mouse - Thursday 19th Sept

Well, that was an excellent evening (apart from a slight hold-up at Hayes on the way in and the usual 'good service' on the Circle Line, which between hem meant I didn't even get to Cannon Street until 18:40. Other than that, no major issues in the run and my dodgy ankle held up (the test will be to...

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

I have to say I'm guilty of overusing acronyms in my own notes when route planning, which has led to confusion between Westbourne Park and Wembley Park, between Walthamstow Central and White City, and even between Leytonstone High Road and Heathrow Airport!
