I guess this would have happened before with the Standard and CO/CP stocks.

As for Johnny and Beary....you are the weakest links. GOODBYE
Hey, it doesn't work that way. You must ask the strongest link to decide who has to leave. :wink:

I did it yesterday, starting and finishing at St. Georges Cross n the inner circle. Didn't know that you didn't have to go all the way round... It took me 0:23:38. For a record you should start at Govan and finish at Partick. Trains usually stand at Govan for a couple of minutes.

Well, you must have quite a collection of pictures, then! I am most impressed that you've visited all 275 of them. May I ask what the picture that you have as your "avatar" is of?

What do you do at each station? Do you whizz out of the station and then back in immediately, or do you take some time to explore the local area? For example, at Kenton you might want to go and spend some time in the local Sainsbury's supermarket, or at Latimer Road you could spend an enjoyable hal...

You can do about 40 a day. I started in July 2001 and finished in February 2005. I guess it must have been about four to five visits to London. When I was there last month I did the Piccadilly Line from Heathrow to Cockfosters and the High Barnet branch together with a couple of other Zone 1 station...

Another historical All Stations

In Underground News 500 (August 2003) there is an old report about another All Stations Challenge: Barry Price, 19, of Marlow spent GBP 54 in fares and took 18 hours 30 minutes and 42 seconds to visit every Underground station and travel the entire system in July 1965. Would be interesting to know w...
