Re: Birmingham R15

My first time out with you guys, and it was fun! Sadly, I can't make either the R15 next month or the Zone 1 challenge at the end of May, but the R15 in July is quite possible. There was also talk of making this an annual event. That would be nice, especially as we didn't go up the Chase Line at all...

Re: Birmingham R15

Finished!

Someone suggested The Anchor in Digbeth for a pre-curry pint. Anybody else heading there?

Re: Birmingham R15

Have about two-thirds of my route planned. Will figure out the finish on the fly, depending on what delays there are.

Excited!

(there are a few people who have said "yes" or "maybe" in the thread, but haven't updated in the usual format)
How does one update in the usual format? Re-post this but with my own name added?

Re: No more direct Woodford via Hainaults

Was it like this historically though? Looking at old tube maps, before the mid-1990s the layout seems to indicate that went to Hainault via Newbury Park, Hainault via Woodford, or Epping. OK, so that's not a shuttle service but it does invlve always having to change at Hainault. I don't think it wil...

Re: Birmingham R15

I'm now attending, as will be my partner in grime. We'll also both be going for the curry afterwards.

Re: Attempt No.1 - 05/09/19

My girlfriend and I did our first attempt at FNC a few months ago. (etc.) Congratulations on your FNC completion! I am also a newbie here, my team only having done one FNC (in April 2018) and no other challenges. Thank you for not knocking us off our spot at the bottom of the league table, with a t...

Re: Attempt No.1 - 05/09/19

Congratulations, and thank you for a fantastic account! Morden is notorious for inaccurate next trains, as is Elephant. Any plans for trying to beat that time? Yes, I plan to do it again with Casey as support only. (Meaning that running connections will be faster, and there might be someone to tell...

Attempt No.1 - 05/09/19

My girlfriend and I did our first attempt at FNC a few months ago. What follows is an account I wrote shortly afterwards which I then posted on my own Facebook Profile. Meanwhile, my other half found out about alternative challenges for us to try, which led to me finding this forum. I don't want to ...

Re: Birmingham R15

What luck! I join this forum yesterday and there is a challenge in my home city on a Saturday that I am free!

So yes, count me in. My challenge partner (aka girlfriend) may also be able to make it. And curry afterwards sounds excellent!
