Re: No more direct Woodford via Hainaults

More info on the changes, we only have to wait until 2023 for the full service to be reinstated: Dear ----, We contacted you in November to advise of changes to Central line services from Sunday 26 January 2020. Whilst the changes to the service will provide benefits to many of you, we do recognise ...

Re: Zone 1 challenge training

Apologies for the long post, but if you get to the end, it'll be worth it - honest! Well, training was a bit rubbish. Managed to get out of bed early enough to start at 8.17, but it all went downhill from there: a Bakerloo line train sat outside Elephant & Castle for two minutes; a lovely interchang...

Re: Zone 1 challenge training

My friend has invited me to travel in the cab on her second train of the day - I'm a little bit excited about this 8) :wink: Only a little??? That would be British understatement. Actually I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement and feel like a five-year-old waiting for Christmas Day to arrive :...

Re: Birmingham R15

I have now created a link to a pack with contains a "tube-style" map I created and timetables which cover all routes and stations which could come out. Let me know if anyone has any issues accessing it - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YWFD2ush3vQRJcH9PrYDV9knhLSFsLHN Lovely bit of work there. Un...

Re: Zone 1 challenge training

Slight change of plan - have to be at Edgware Road by 11.30, so might do half the route in the morning and half in the afternoon - pausing the clock at an appropriate point.

Zone 1 challenge training

There are no engineering works/closures on the Underground tomorrow (more than can be said for the Overground)! I've decided it's about time I stopped checking my preferred Zone 1 challenge route online, and actually attempt it for real. Given my fitness levels and a Saturday service, I'm hoping to ...

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 ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 3

In the meantime, Sarah and I are seriously considering Hugo's bonkers IKEA challenge ... I've never been to IKEA. If you've never been exposed to IKEA before, I'm not sure five in one day is good for your health. Luckily, Sarah is a veteran IKEA shopper. Just hope our relationship survives the day :D

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 3

... Also at Central were Kev and A2 who had caught a bus from Bethnal Green LU, and Jenny (not sure how she got there). I was on the bus too. This was a lucky mistake - I thought I was getting a bus down to Bethnal Green overground, but had come out of the wrong exit of the LU station. I was puzzle...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 3

Apologies for the language, but BOLLOCKS!! That was my reaction to getting off a stop too early at Gospel Oak today - doh! My route was very similar to the winners, only changing at Paddington rather than Edgware Road. But having to wait for the next train at Gospel Oak meant I was 40 minutes behin...

Re: London Bus 24

Just realised that you'll be in my neck of the woods for this. Depending on what time you reach Brunel Road (#7), we can provide a loo stop, cup of tea or water top up, if you need it.

Re: London Bus 24

And the @Onthebuses account seems to belong to someone who's posted three times that they don't know what they're doing and then gave up :lol: Aren't Twitter talking about getting rid of dormant accounts? You could put in a bid for a name change.
