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

With the yule-f**k that is in Hyde Park now seemingly being a permanent annual feature, surely every year this is going to be a misery. Why not move it to the summer, during the R15 off-season? I never understood what the connection between Christmas and Park is anyway! Just think... Nicer weather (...

What is the only UK number one single in which every line of the lyrics is a question?

-- REDACTED --
Just realised that I haven't followed this up.
If anyone's interested, the answer is "When Will I See You Again" by the Three Degrees.

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

Hyde Park Corner doesn't seem to have its name on the roundels at the top of the stairs, so what do you take a photo of? Unless my memory is playing tricks there is a white text on blue background illuminated sign in the subway above the very threshold of the station itself. Isn't that what you're ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

9th: Michael Churchill: 14 stations completed in 06:00:20 at Drayton Park I'm a little confused by this one - how, given a 6 hour time limit, has a time outside of this limit been accepted? Or was a dispensation given for its closeness to the limit? Doesn't impact me in the slightest, but just foun...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

Fully explained in my post... I still had a chance to squeeze in one more station. Victoria to Highbury & Islington, then the Great Northern to Drayton Park which left at 1828 and arrived at Drayton Park at 1830 (and 20 seconds according to my watch). I was on that train before the six hour time lim...

13:51 Touch in, Hammersmith (Circle, H&C lines) 14:13 Touch out, Hammersmith (Circle, H&C lines) Never mind, according to https://www.oyster-rail.org.uk/same-station-continuation-exits/, with less 30 minutes between touch-in and touch-out, you are charged the cheapest single fare, but that counts t...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

Anyone an expert on the tangled web that is TfL fares? I've noticed that my Oyster was capped at £9.80 on Saturday, the normal price for zones 1-4, but I had no touches in or out in Zone 4. It was capped at the zones 1-3 price of £8.00 until Bow Road, then Bow Road to Willesden Junction (with OSIs b...

So, RJSRdg, when I was getting off at St. Pancras and you said you had 2 stations to go, I thought you'd be doing the same as me, but you'd already done Drayton Park!

Re: CiN 2018 - 16th November

Is there a catergory c record if so please explain after random 15 of course I wasn't even aware of Category B... I asked GU about this at the R15. As I understand it, Guinness used to recognise several categories of records: A: the usual GWR FNC rules B: allowed to use private transport C: not lea...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

I spent most of my day, including all of envelope 2, with Das, so this can probably count as a write-up for him too. My route for the first envelope seems to be similar to others... From Paddington (Praed Street) , District to Notting Hill Gate, Central via Shepherd's Bush and West Acton to Ealing B...
