Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 3

How not to do a Tube Challenge, Episode 3. "I think I'll go through life just catching colds and missing trains..." - Frank Sinatra I'd been 'practising' since Tangy released the starting station by running the generator a couple of times a day and trying to work out routes. It helped in that it mad...

Re: Night tube

There are also toilets at Woodford, and a public toilet between West Ruislip and Ickenham.

Remember also that if you use Chiltern or C2C services as part of your route, they have toilets as well.

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

Either of those dates to me seem to be very close to this season's R15 dates so we may find that then the R15 has to be moved (to December?). Personally I don't think the issue with WW is as big an issue as is being made out. You know it's on, you know stations may be closed later in the day, and yo...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

Thought about it, but in view of the cold weather, and the amount of hanging around at certain stations, decided against it.

Not really my favourite challenge, especially at this time of year...

Re: Could one train travel the entire tube network?

If only we could find a Tube driver to drive it and a Tube signaller to change the points. Don't know where we'd be able to find them from ;-)

Re: Roads Streets and Lanes challenge

I had an abortive crack at this one today (after riding the very last Chiltern service from Paddington, and meeting a certain Mr Marshall...). Hopped on a Met at Ruislip, with the aim of starting the challenge at Rayner's Lane, only to find that the train I was on was a Harrow-on-the-Hill terminator...

Congrats to Richie on his first completion :D

Does anyone fancy another go at this at some point or was it horrendous not being able to leave the network?
I wouldn't mind a go at it at some point, but NOT the same weekend as an R15!

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

Started at Paddington (B,C,D) and originally considered heading east to get the H&C at Edgware Road, but instead headed south. Raced everyone down the escalators at Notting Hill Gate and was surprised when I thought I'd reached the Central platform ahead of everyone else - until I realised I'd gone ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

The reduced service for the SWR strike may make it difficult for those doing Brooklands parkrun.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

Just a thought though - wouldn't the subway underneath the Paddington hotel (i.e. at the bottom of the main steps from the Paddington NR concourse) be a better meeting place, as it would be easier to access the Bakerloo from there if anybody wanted to? Or is it too busy there?
