Re: Alphabet on a line

In order of least interesting to most interesting at first glance: - Waterloo and City (this challenge a few of us have done by complete accident) - Victoria (only interchanges that could possibly interest anyone are H&I and Stockwell, this is incredibly dull up and down work) - Bakerloo (I predict...

Re: Whole tube map challenge

I think the rule is they only show services that are likely to actually be useful to people, not services that are only run for operational convenience.

Re: Crossrail challenge

Hmm... I'm hoping they'll give them the names they already have. I'm fed up of mentioning the North London Line in conversation with Camden/Gospel Oak/Willesden/Hackney-based friends, them looking at me in utter confusion and it taking them a few seconds to twig I'm talking about "The Overground". ...

Alternative Alphabet Challenge

I am a new user but I have spent a bit of time looking through the old forum posts and found an idea that I like: Start at a letter and go through to the previous letter.
