Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2018 - 15th December - Finsbury Park

You MUST depart from Finsbury Park on LU this is nominated starting Station Is this true? I know it was an exceptional set of circumstances, but the Tufnell Park challenge start simply required a photo of the exterior and a subsequent pass through. If the argument is going to be made that it was cl...

Re: Practice attempt

I think that a local journo would probably be viewed as having something to gain from doing the timekeeping (I.e. a news story), and would therefore not be considered independent

Re: The Kings Cross - Waterloo challenge

The one-change routes are mostly fairly sensible but it beats me why anyone would have done a route involving more than one change (especially considering that going between two major main line stations they are likely to have luggage with them). Perhaps these were routes taken on weekends where en...

Re: Guinness world record regulations

I thought that here would be as good a place as any to quote, in full, the appeal rejection email that I have just received from GWR in regards to mine and Andi's Berlin attempt: Thank you for submitting the appeal of your records decision to Guinness World Records. After a full Records Management T...

Re: Guinness world record regulations

- Go-Pro strapped to the chest - I've worked out that the battery life is the limiting factor here. Each battery only last 1:45mins at the lowest resolution video. I've managed to borrow 3 batteries, but simple maths says that still isn't enough. 32GB SD card, allows me to film all 12 miles or so o...

Re: How many ...?

I've had friends be my stopwatch operators / independent witnesses on many occasions before, but they were willing to do so because it was my (in collaboration with others) challenge attempt. I'm 100% certain that I would get short shrift if I were to say to them "Hey [enter name here] - you know yo...

Re: GWR Independent Witnesses

Under the current Guinness interpretation, it would appear that it only takes for you to know the witnesses for them to then be considered inappropriate. They refuse to respond to my question of how you are supposed to get truly random, unknown members of the public to be in specific locations at sp...

Re: How many ...?

I would love to get some pearls of wisdom passed down from the seniors/legends of the forum, of things a FNC newbie should think of, from good shortcuts, common mistakes, stations that catch people out, convenient toilet/snack stops, how to beat the OSIs, or my personal bugbear - why all the TfL "l...
