Re: Post-Lockdown FNC

Same here! On the one hand, I'm itching to try it, on the other I've no desire to stand nose to armpit with a crowd of other people on the Piccadilly or Central Lines!

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

Here's an R15 variation from me. I read this article https://londonist.com/london/transport/which-tube-station-do-you-share-your-birthday-with?fbclid=IwAR0hYS9w6dHoa98be32uyRW0TrVPdqJi4OA2dcdoqA0IrLAMXHp70U1yP94 on Londonist earlier.

All the rest are correct.

I was considering a Full Network on that day ...
Who isn't?
I daresay which records get attempted when might depend on what other parts of the network are open at the time, and which day of the week the extension opens.
