Re: Roads Streets and Lanes - Tim Brooke-Taylor

Not yet. From his Facebook feed looks like he's gallivanting around the country on various bus routes. So imagine he won't reply to my email until he gets home.

Re: 1st FNC advice pls

I can recommend the "Station Master" app as it has 3D maps of all the tunnels and bridges connecting platforms at every station. You'll see clearly how the platforms at Euston line up. On the app webpage there are some example maps, including Euston: https://www.stationmasterapp.com/3dmaps.html. It ...

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

Nice questions Michael!

For the first one, I started off thinking that the characters were lawyers who changed profession. But that didn't fit all of them, so then I was stumped.

Re: Roads Streets and Lanes - Tim Brooke-Taylor

Had the day off again yesterday, the weather was a perfect 15 degrees, so went out to give RSL another go. And I did it in a new record time - 3:46:16! However, before I started I checked all the lines were running but didn't check stations. When I got there, I discovered that Goodge Street was clos...

Re: Nose Counting

I assume he's referring to the non-exempt people who have a mask but it only covers the mouth or chin.

Can we get extra points for people who take their mask off to cough all over their hands then put it back on again (as seen at Bank last week).

Re: Roads Streets and Lanes - Tim Brooke-Taylor

I had a go at this today in a cautious, socially-distant manner and very happy with my time of 3:58:32. Personal rules were: - stick to off peak times, so started at 10.30 from Gloucester Road - mask at all times when on tubes or stations (the only time I took my mask off was the OSI between Warwick...

Re: All change please! An update from me

Congratulations and good luck!

Lovely part of the world. I've got friends who live just outside Huddersfield. 20 minutes walk from their front door and you're on the Pennine Way. They've got lots of opinions on the Leeds to Manchester route if you need a biased sample set :D

Re: The latest COVID-19 guidance

I volunteer with a food distribution charity, so once a fortnight I travel by tube. In the morning "rush hour", the Central and Jubilee lines are now fairly busy, but usually an empty seat between people. This week, I let one train go as it was too busy, but only had to wait a minute for the next on...

Happy birthday EAW!

And also happy birthday to Temple (1870); Finchley Road, West Hampstead (1879); Greenford, Hanger Lane, Perivale (1947)!
That's a very illustrious list of fellow birthdayers! And all older than me :D

Ah, yes, that makes #7 a lot easier! No excuses for getting 1 and 10 wrong - missed a step for #1 and some spectacularly bad counting for #10 :oops:
