Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 2

So happy - what a fantastic run today! Had so many great changes and only one long wait of seven minutes. At Oval , I forgot which way to go so got to the platform just in time to see Hugo get on the train and the doors shut. Worked out for the best once I looked at the list again, and was able to c...

Loved that! Showed it to Sarah - if it's possible, she now thinks we're even madder than before :shock:

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 2

This District Line business is confusing - TFL shows as follows "District Line: Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November, no service Earl's Court - East Ham. A reduced service will operate between Barking - East Ham and Earl's Court - Ealing Broadway. Additonal trains will operate Earl's Court - Edgware ...

Re: Snake Challenge - The Return

great start - big gap between Epping trains from East Acton. Going to get there around 11.05. This pretty much set the tone for the day :roll: Got to Epping in time to see off Adam on the 11.26 departure and I went next at 11.52. Was happy about this, as on paper, the connections were good enough f...

Re: Snake Challenge - The Return

So how does this work? Do we all turn up at 11 and then work out what order we start in?

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2019 - 14th December - Chiswick Park

My initial route would have finished at Elm Park. But now that I need to be at a 18.00 panto, that would mean finishing around 16.30 at Elm Park to have time to get back. Even starting at 9.00, I think that sort of pace is beyond me, so happy to take a bit longer and finish somewhere convenient for ...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2019 - 14th December - Chiswick Park

lets make it clear the starting window is 0900-1100 for everyone this year Thanks Kev ... still researching potential routes. Heading to Park Royal first and finishing at Ravenscourt Park is not a good option :lol: (And good luck in the Cup. Peterborough United are my first football love, so defini...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2019 - 14th December - Chiswick Park

I now have the added challenge of going to a panto at 18.00 ... in Hammersmith. This is going to be an "interesting" route.

Edit: Hm, can I start earlier than 10.00, or just accept I won't do all the stations?

Re: Counting

[Finally a game where I understand the rules!]

Hunslet 2890 has led an exciting life: first as an austerity locomotive in WWII, then owned by the Coal Board, private owners and railway lines, before modification to become No 10 'Douglas', "one of the friends of a famous blue engine".

Re: Generator failure?

Great news!

I had fun creating the spreadsheet anyway, and learnt a few more things about what Google sheets can do :D

Re: Generator failure?

Had a chat with A2 on Saturday night and sounds like it'll be a bit of a slog to get the generator site fixed. So, I've been playing with Google sheets again and come up with this one to try to replicate the behaviour of the site: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1H_edPzrt6vGIamh1yEt6rasCV8Ti4...

£4.20 for a coke is a joke.
I like the pub, but was a little surprised that a pint of cider and a pint of coke from the squirty dispenser thing came to £8.80.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

My route was very similar to Michael's: First error of the day - quickly scanned the station list and didn't notice Canada Water, so thought it was only Waterloo NR and LU south of the river. Hopped on the first train to Vauxhall and thought I'd loop back on the tube. I noticed Canada Water when goi...
