Re: New Random 15 Championship season.

Although January is down as the 'National Rail' twist. it will also be the first R15 after the opening of the central section of Crossrail.

Cause for a 'commemorative start' at one of the Crossrail stations?

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

As per usual, I think I had a unique (i.e. wrong) route. Sometimes taking a unique route can pay off - if everybody else gets caught up in a signal failure/station evacuation etc that you have somehow avoided! (I remember in the 2016 Tube Olympics DLR challenge David took a different route to every...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

In terms of Round 6, my route was almost exactly the same as RJSRdg EXCEPT I gambled and did the rather unusual Barbican - Mansion House run (yes you read that correctly!). This got me a train ahead of 2nd place. Looking at that on the map, there's no way I could have done that in the time you did ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

Having checked the scores from previous rounds, I knew that Tangy, Alex, Simon and I were all effectively level on 20 points (Alex and Simon had scored 21 but as their lowest score was a 1, this would be discounted if they had a higher score this time), with A2 on 22 and Kev on 25. Competitively I w...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

If the decision is made to fit in around football, so be it, but I'm not a big football fan. By the way, would it be based on the teams that regular participants are fans of, or which London teams have home games? Personally, I'd prefer it to be decided on the amount of engineering disruption, and ...

Re: FNC on a Saturday = ??

There are pros and cons with regards to attempting a FNC on a Saturday (apart from the obvious pro that for most of us it's a day off work already). Pros * Olympia service every 20 minutes * No 'rush hour' either on the Tube itself or on any bus routes used Cons * Difficult to find a Saturday when t...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

Tangy Thanks for doing this, however having looked back over the results for the competitors who have completed five rounds, I'm not sure they're all correct. By my reckoning, Clive should have 31 points (6 + 5 + 12 + 5 + 3) and I should be on 20 ( 0 + 5 + 7 + 0 + 8 ). Please can you confirm? (Thoug...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

Well, that was a good afternoon :-) Started at Hampstead and went down in the lift and on to a southbound train like everybody else (except Andy who's probably still waiting outside the station for Hugo to turn up!). I love starts like this where everyone heads off the same way as it means those who...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

After the debacles in the last two rounds when the vital pages covering Brondesbury and Willesden were found to be missing, I have now purchased a new A to Z!

Re: Zone 1 Challenge Cup 2018- Friday 1st June.

Just to note that Northern line Bank branch trains will not be stopping at Kennington from 26th May until mid-September. Charing Cross branch trains will continue to stop as normal. Probably won't affect most zone 1 routes, but might be more relevant for the R15. Given that I almost certainly won't...

Re: 1st FNC attempt after Easter

Firstly, sorry about the confusion in my initial message -- Tuesday 3 April was the day of the attempt. Success! ...sort of. We have a completion, only not during the same day. We missed out on T4 in the evening, as I feared we might. Having started at Uxbridge at 05:18:37, we first fell behind aro...
