Re: Recce runs

I’m still interested that people think GWR validation suddenly becomes easier when the spur opens, and that’s why people are waiting! It’s a tough time to beat, that’s the bottom line. Cross rail.... personally, the more time spent not on a tube line is detrimental to overall time, so cross rail can...

Re: Recce runs

With the ridiculous criteria now needed as evidence by GWR a lot of us simply can't be bothered anymore :( [/quote] Well surely it's enough to be recognised by this forum, rather than by GWR? You don't do R15 for the benefit of GWR! (and I should probably do a R15 at some point...). The GWR rules wo...

Re: Recce runs

It really has gone quiet on the FNC forum, hasn't it? Everyone seems to be waiting for Battersea spur to open/have given up.

Perhaps time for another attempt....

Re: 1st FNC attempt after Easter

I’m on holiday mode with many hours time difference and thought they had said Tuesday. Then good luck to them!

Re: Tube Olympics 2018: Event 5- Full Network

Much congratulations to all, particularly in such chilly conditions. I was cold enough attempting in September! Definitely making me want to plan my 2nd/3rd attempt, albeit it in warmer conditions! Official results of the 2018 Winter Olympics Full Network Challenge held on Friday 3rd February 2018. ...

Re: CCTV Subject Access Request

This is really interesting. I was planning on testing this if my FNC attempt had come in on track. I had planned to ask for the key interchanges/End of Lines/Start and Finish. Be interested to see what GWR would make of not having every attempt/every station though! Also, being part of the GDPR comm...

Re: Practice attempt

Both Chesham and Amersham have them. Raised £1000 for charity in the end, so that helped those local Facebook communities get on board helping with witnesses

Re: Practice attempt

I'm still to fully write up by 8th Sept attempt (17:13:08 - how do I get Nigel to add that to the times list?) but for Chesham, the Facebook community board were incredibly helpful and keen to help when one of my witnesses pulled out last minute. Otherwise it's certainly a case of beg borrow and ste...

Re: Recce runs

So these Recce runs have mounted up, and I've spent the time getting them into my notes rather than onto this forum... but my attempt is this Friday. I'll attempt to share as much as I can after the event, and after a relaxing (non-tube, non-running) weekend away! Any last minute pieces of advice or...

Re: Guinness world record regulations

I thought that here would be as good a place as any to quote, in full, the appeal rejection email that I have just received from GWR in regards to mine and Andi's Berlin attempt: Thank you for submitting the appeal of your records decision to Guinness World Records. After a full Records Management ...

Re: Guinness world record regulations

Agreed! It says video, not what the quality of recording is like! As fiddly as it would be, I wonder if filming every train door open/photo, and turning the camera off to conserve battery when I couldn't possibly be doing anything other than sitting ON A TRAIN going between two points that I've film...

Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

It certainly was a great day to be attempting a NW corner test run, coming down the Bakerloo line at 10am :roll: :roll: :roll: .... but maybe better than my normal commute which gets off at Oxford Circus Victoria line....

Re: Guinness world record regulations

Thanks Steeevooo! It is definitely making me consider whether I should just make an attempt that would be considered valid by this forum, rather than trying to please the GWR. Recognition by this group of a fair attempt arguably more important a placement in a book. Alternatively, I might attempt to...
