Re: Birmingham R15

Peaky Blinders Top Tip: Most lines in Birmingham have 15-30 min frequency. But Stratford-on-Avon stoppers and Coventry-Leamington Spa via Kenilworth are only hourly. Even worse are Chiltern’s Stratford-On-Avon-Leamington Spa trains, which are every two hours, so you will need to plan the south-east...

For reference if anyone finds themselves stuck there... the pub The Warwickshire Lad next to Wood Green station is also very nice :)

Oops, yes. Wood End.

Post meet up on Sat evening is Manzil’s Restaurant, 112 Digbeth, B5 6DT. It is 5 mins walk from Moor Street.
What time are we expected and is "tufnellpark" the codeword for admittance?

Re: Birmingham R15

By order of the Peaky Blinders…. a timed photo of each station, showing clearly the station name. You do not need to do this for your first station, if you depart from Birmingham New Street. Please clarify. Intending to time using phone and take photos from phone. Cannot take photo of phone from ph...

Re: Birmingham R15

Good luck everyone - hope the rain doesn't cause any problems! Will you be putting the list of stations up on the forum on Saturday morning? Would be fun to do the challenge virtually, especially as Dave has done all the work with maps and timetables. Yes we will be putting up a stations list on he...

Re: Birmingham R15

Can we also have a clarification on Request Stops please? Good question. Stations will count as long as the train is booked to stop there. As you say this mainly affects the Moor Street- Stratford-upon-Avon line. As long as it shows as a request stop in the timetable, it will count even if no one r...

Re: Birmingham R15

Can we also have a clarification on Request Stops please? This isn't something that comes up on the TFL challenges, but there are several of these along the Stratford-Birmingham line, and also along the Stratford-Leamington line. Rather than forcing a train to stop when it might not be going to can ...

Re: Snake Challenge - The Return

Very much a "maybe" on this one for me. Will make a decision closer to the time, but its a challenge / route that I haven't done previously so would be interested to do it.
