Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

I think it would be nice to do this to mark the opening of the Northern Line extension, whenever that happens. It would give us a reason to ride it - not that we need a reason.

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

“&” counts a one letter One number counts as one letter That would mean that both Totteridge & Whetstone and Heathrow Terminals 2 & 3 are 20-letter stations as well, so no fixed finishing point. Which is fine, but I rather like the idea of having to finish at a given station - in this case, High St...

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

I think this would be fun to do as an event, as we'd all finish in the same place and probably all have the same first move: Bank :arrow: Angel. So we'd start and finish together but everything inbetween would be a mystery... until we got to the pub.

Yes, I think I suggested it once.
Yes, you did. I found the original post.

I was going to post a link to the thread, except the original post had no replies so there's not much point.

It is possible to do this even not paying for the tube. I will prove this one day.
Finchley Central start, so as to get a perfect MHE?

(Not that it matters, as no-one will break any records doing it this way.)

Re: Post-Lockdown FNC

I think the early morning Oylmpia trains can also be unreliable, basically for the same reason. (Although I'll stand corrected if people disagree.)

More than anything, remember that it won't go to plan. Go out and have fun!

Rich has said that the Tim Brooke-Taylor tribute will be starting from wherever we want, so you'll be able to use your nice route.
Oh goody! I've since done some tweeking on it so it's even better.

Re: Birmingham R15

Since we've had one day summary, I might as well do mine... As Tufnell Park stated, my partner in grime and I started by heading to Dudey Port. Only 2 trains an hour in either direction so a bit awkward. Heading back into town things started to get delayed. We had a tight connection for a Tile Hill ...

Re: Roads Streets and Lanes - Tim Brooke-Taylor

How would this work? Can we start anywhere, as we'll all finish at the same point? (Working on a route now) That was what I was thinking. Yes you can EXCEPT on Talk Like a Pirate day where the Cannon Street start is fixed... Excellent! I'm going to have to do some serious thinking on a route from C...

Re: All Tube Challenge - The return of a mad idea

So it's possible, not a completely horrendous thing to do, and there is a time of 23 hours and something already set. As it's discussed as a Cat C record on the linked thread, does this mean it wasn't the first time an FNC was made like this? Anybody know what the record is for 270 stations as a Cat...

Re: All Tube Challenge - The return of a mad idea

If you're going for Fri into Sat, could you not tap into the regular Saturday service to Olympia? So my original idea was to do as much as possible with regular weekday daytime service then run-over into night tube when the regular service finishes, as night tube is less frequent. But given that I'...

All Tube Challenge - The return of a mad idea

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, I'm not spending a lot more time at home than I otherwise would, and as one means of entertainment I've been scouring the depths of this forum. One interesting suggestion from 2013 was for an 'All Tube' FNC, that is one in which no means of public transport ther than tu...
