hope you enjoyed the 4mph speed limit at pommona
Nope, and neither the one at Trafford Bar. We had a very chatty driver up and down Altrincham.

How did this go?
We completed it, just wanted to process photos/videos before posting.
6 hours 10 minutes was the time. The 10 minutes frequency doesn’t much help, there were some late trams too.

Re: Metrolink Challenge

Thank you very much! When you are on the tram 5-6 hours a day weather is not that important at least for me. I usually go by bike and there was some quite wet days and roads in the recent weeks. :)

Re: Metrolink Challenge

In a few moments time, I'm heading into town and I will try the Metrolink Challenge again, this time together with the Trafford Park line and probably setting up a new or at least hear not announced record if I can finish it hopefully.

Re: Metrolink Challenge

On the 2nd of October, 2019, I attempted the Manchester Metrolink Challenge. Actually, twice, but later about that. I posted the same text alongside with images to my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/travelmcfamily/posts/2225543501024470 It was a bright, sunny day, but a little bit cold ...

Re: Metrolink Challenge

I will try the Metrolink Challenge the day after tomorrow, 02/10/2019 starting from Rochdale Town Centre at 09:06. If anyone wants to meet, I'll be there around half an hour earlier. Just leave a message here so we can find each other. I'll do live videos on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.c...

Re: Metrolink Challenge

You are fine. I think the Metrolink challenge quite simpler than the FNC in London. Anyway what’s your time, the world record?

Re: Metrolink Challenge

I understand that, but hopefully, it doesn't mean I can't or shouldn't publish it. I did not expect anyone else, especially not the record holder to give me a route to accomplish, I was just eager to see how he got that record. My first three timetabling attempts showed me a minimum of 6 hours and 2...

I will do it, and I will publish it, also producing some videos.

Hi,

I don't do videos I'm afraid, and because I'm a bit competitive I'm also not keen on giving away anything to do with my route. Sorry.
Have you made any log or proof of that time?
Photos maybe, first and last station with timestamps? This would reveal two points, but not the whole route.

Re: Metrolink Challenge

I was in Manchester last Thursday, and with the Second City Crossing now open, thought I would give this network a go. There are now 93 stations, with seven extremities and one stub. I completed in 5h35m16s which was basically on schedule, even though I dropped behind a couple of times (once down t...
