Re: Post-Lockdown FNC

It's obviously very frustrating. I managed to come up with a new improved route just before the lockdown happened which I would love to try out as soon as possible.

Re: Stations List

Thanks for the replies, although I haven't looked at them yet because I wanted to work out the answers without being influenced. I'm getting the following: there are 314 possible different journeys between two tube stations in one direction, which means 626 journeys if you count both directions sinc...

Re: Stations List

Sorry if I'm going off topic. I was wondering — does anyone know what the average journey time is across the entire Tube network for individual journeys between two stations? I'm guessing it's about 2.6 or 2.7 minutes but I haven't actually timed all the journeys. Not yet anyway. :D I'd also be inte...

Re: Thinking out loud

Another technical question about the Tube Challenge, (which has probably been asked before at some point in time). If you've done 269 out of 270 stations but the final station involves getting there by walking / bus, etc, so that the final journey is from station number 270 to the next station which...

Re: Zone 1 start/finish?

Sorry if this has already been discussed elsewhere, but can anyone confirm that the number of stations in a zone one only challenge would be 68 in total? In some places it says 64 or 61 but I don't think those are right. (I assume the Zone 1 challenge includes stations that are in both zones 1 and 2...

Re: Another proposed attempt

Question: does anyone know whether the Central Line timetable has been changed in the last week or so? The reason I ask is that there always used to be a 8:55am train departing from Epping towards central London, but this seems to have disappeared from the timetables in the last few days. Could it b...

Re: Another proposed attempt

At the start of this year I hadn't even heard of the Tube Challenge despite being interested in the Tube for many years. Between January and March I managed to come up with a route that takes 16 hours 13 minutes which is one minute faster than the time that used to be the world record before the cur...

Yes it's fine as it uses the same track. Same for Gunnersbury to Richmond.
Thank you. Personally, if I were writing the rules, I wouldn't allow it. I think people should have to use an actual Tube train to do the Tube Challenge, but that's just my opinion.

Re: Walk The Tube 2019

Sorry to go off topic, but I'm not sure which thread to post this in. (If the moderators want to move this post into a more appropriate thread, that's okay with me). My question is this: can anyone confirm that it's okay to use the Overground between Harrow and Wealdstone and Queen's Park when attem...
