Re: Could one train travel the entire tube network?

I would recommend "Clive's UndergrounD Line Guides" , click on a line you're interested in and find the "Connections" section. For the Central line,it says There used to be a connection between the eastbound Central Line and the District Line platforms at Ealing Broadway, and one to the adjacent Nat...

Re: Tumbleweed - The Rules and Discussion

For clarifification... Soup Dragon's posts on the game thread 09 Oct 2018, 17:40 / 17:43 count as "spoilers", and "reset the clock" at 17:40 because the second consecutive spoiler at 17:43 has no effect. Therefore Going Underground's claim of 47 bells 11 Oct 2018, 12:04 would be correct for the last...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

I've just discovered that Embankment station used to be called Charing Cross! Had I been doing the R15 a few decades ago, my original route would have been valid without the need to go out again.... ;-) Ahhh! But then Charing Cross wasn't called Charing Cross! Either the Bakerloo station Trafalgar ...

You weren't back at that point, so there was a chance I might not have come last!
Good point. I didn't rush to the pub after finishing.

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 8th / 15th Dec

It seems to me that every write-up I've read about previous challenges mentions hold-ups due to Arsenal and/or Chelsea football crowds. FYI it seems that both are at home on 8th December, but both are away on 15th December.

That's true dedication to go back out there!
I wouldn't have bothered. No difference between last place and disqualified.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

I wondered how Richard's time was even slower than my second-last place! The ironic cheer when I arrived at the pub made me think I was dead last. Yes, the first part of my route followed Andi and Das, accidentally. It was good to get to talk to them about last week's film premiere. So, I went Circl...

Re: Children in need tube challenge the film

For those who can't get to see the film on the big screen, what about a screening of some sort at Zone 1 Day next year? Availability and venue permitting of course. Even if it means gathering around an iPad :D

Re: Children in need tube challenge the film

https://www.acfilm.co.uk/events-1 I'll be there! I'm no film critic, but I thought the film was really good. It's not just for "people like us", I'd recommend it to anyone. I think it's an excellent explanation of the "sport" of tube challenge, and doesn't make us all look like nerds, which I was a...
