Walk The Tube 2019

When Geoff did this a few years ago I was unable to do it, I think it's a brilliant idea so now I am in a position to do so I have decided to host one. https://walkthetube.com/ This uses the same name and description as the previous Walk The Tube, this in no way diminishes the previous attempts or t...

Re: Night tube

Toilets in the NW corner havent been too bad when I've been there before. Ones on platform at Northwick Park (I think) were the best of the available bunch

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

As I wasn't going for a record attempt or anything I 'cheated' and used the overground. I am planning a route that use one of the 7 or 8 trains a day to do it properly though.

Re: Night tube

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

So, the Victoria line had severe delays on it. By the time I got to the NW corner I was unable to complete all. I managed 267/270, missing out Watford, Croxley and Chesham. The rest of my connections had a maximum wait time of 5 minutes so i'm happy with that. My time for 267 was 18:52:12. I'm plann...

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

I've already counted for Edgware Road and Paddington. Are there any other stations on the network twice. I've done myself a list and I can only get it to 269 stations.

Re: First Attempt 04/01/19

I know it's an odd station but the parking is cheaper than Heathrow and its a long walk from terminal 5 to the long stay car park. I know there is a shuttle bus but I can't find what happens with that overnight
