You can get from London to Malmo by train. I've done it, although not consecutively, but over the course of a week.
Apparently it was 14 hours travelling time on the trains (to Copenhagen) not including changes, so not practical for a day trip!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

So, I did a parkrun yesterday... Hope the trip didn't cost too much - are you staying in Sweden for a Sat run? You can get from London to Malmo by train. I've done it, although not consecutively, but over the course of a week. Eurostar to Brussels, Thalys to Amsterdam, ICE to Hamburg, ICE to Copenh...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

Chapter 1 So, sorry to all you parkrun enthusiasts, I don't think I'll be joining you. I like my Saturday lie-ins too much. At least you gave it a go Michael and not as easy as you would think to get around 5k - I did 9 months of training runs up to 2 miles before I attempted my first parkrun Yeah,...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

Chapter 1 Judge me if you want, I don't care... For the weekend, I was staying near the Thames Barrier, Pontoon Dock being the closest station, and I decided I'd lose my parkrun cherry at Victoria Docks. I thought I'd be alright, briefly, at the start. When I reached the U-turn at the end of the Ex...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

How do you join this club? Do you just need my parkrun ID? In which case, I'm now A5832391. Fantastic Michael, I will add you to the stats. You mention your number is now A5832391, does this mean that you also have a previous number? No, first and only time I've registered. I don't expect to troubl...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 6

Well, the interactive map and the page which seems to have replaced the 6-months-ahead PDF both specifically say no service Earl's Court to Edgware Road, Earl's Court to Wimbledon and Earl's Court to Olympia. If it is was more than that, surely they would have said. As a bad programmer myself, my gu...

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Battery power rather than unsightly overhead lines and pantographs Correct, the pantographs come down entering those squares and the tram runs from on-board batteries, which presumably re-charge when the pantograph is raised again. Wikipedia says a third rail was considered, that sounds dangerous t...

Roland Garros (French Open Tennis) Also one of the first WW1 pilots to use a synchroniser to prevent the machine gun in his cockpit shooting his propeller to bits! Correct. Next, a transport related one... What is unusual about the way the trams in Nice, France cross two of the city's squares, Plac...
