Warm Weather Twist?

Yesterday's Challenge was held on the warmest day of the year so far, and whilst it wasn't as hot on the deep lines as I was expecting (probably because it was the first warm day so the heat hadn't had chance to build up), I think quite a few of us felt afterwards we wouldn't have liked it to be any...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

From Stamford Brook , everyone travelled eastwards, with most people doing the Hammersmith change and up the pink/yellow line to the Royal Oak / Warwick Avenue run. Tangy and David got well ahead of most people here (Andrew C went via the spiral bridge instead), with me in third for quite a while, s...

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Battery power rather than unsightly overhead lines and pantographs Correct, the pantographs come down entering those squares and the tram runs from on-board batteries, which presumably re-charge when the pantograph is raised again. Wikipedia says a third rail was considered, that sounds dangerous t...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 5

Before passing through the barriers at Green Park , I scanned the first few stations on the list. By the time I'd done that everyone else had disappeared and it would be a long time before I saw anyone else! The first thing I noticed was that there were a number of stations up the Jubilee Line (this...

So, it will always suggest .... that you can ... take a direct train from Central London to Mill Hill East.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

Interesting that the last three starts have all been around the NW corner of the Circle Line - Paddington, Baker Street, and now GPS (what did Edgware Road do wrong?). The first start of the season (Cannon Street, for the Cannon Street Run) was also on the Circle Line! Has there been a previous seas...
