Re: TfL Release Raw Timetable Data

I'm afraid I haven't done any updates to this since 2010! It looks like the timetable data is now being released in a different format, so my old macro wouldn't work anyway.

Re: GOBLIN to close for eight months (June 2016)

Although because of the prestigious R15 Championship happening today, TfL have kindly agreed to keep it open until 1900 tonight, just in case it might come in useful.

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

I know it's resurrecting a long dead thread, but I have to pass on this fact I recently discovered... in the form of a question. Name the two people in history who have won a Nobel Prize and had a songwriting credit on a record that has reached number one in the British chart. Bob Dylan is the obvi...

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2017 -16th Dec - Stonebridge Park

Even before the match is fine, the station will be busy, but it will be easy enough to get out and take a picture if necessary. The busiest time is after the match, but hopefully everyone should have already visited it before 5pm.

Re: Forum centred on screen

I noticed the forum was down for a bit last night, so I suspect some sort of software upgrade has taken place?

I think they will. Remember, it is their livelihood...

Should also be noted that I'm very tempted to tear up my Croxley extension route now.
0.001% of their livelihood maybe. As they don't bother to put the record in the book anymore it clearly isn't high on their list of priorities
