The Victoria Line is going up to 36 trains per hour- that's one every 100 seconds!
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

One interesting little snippet - they seem to be swapping the District and Circle line platforms over at Edgware Road. Anyone know why?
Held some Alternative Challenge records for a long time.
Doesn't any more.

There's roughly a 2 1/2 minute gap between trains south from Walthamstow at around 18:50, which spoils my FNC theory route as the earlier train makes the Overground connection too tight, and the following one makes my next connection too tight! :-(

I notice on the C5 programme tonight they said the Picc is being resignalled and getting new trains. If that means there's a new Picc timetable on the way at some point, my route might work again! :-)

By the time that happens, the Northern line extension to Battersea will be open so the record will be reset anyway!

I have a sneaky feeling that you are making up some sort of fake route, so that people think that they know what your route is. However, I guess that this is pretty unlikely...
Zone 1 Challenge (Olympics 2016): 3:44:31.67 - we were very unlucky indeed!
South London Challenge (Summer 2016): 1:58:40 - going to try again soon!
All Lines Challenge (August 2016): 44:38 - happy with this ... For now!

The district was released last, and my plan survived all the other changes except for the district! They pushed my sloane square arrival forward 30s and the departure back 30s, so now the plan is scuppered

Wouldn't that give you an extra minute to make the change?

It also appears eastbound departures from Aldgate East are now 30s earlier (and arrivals at Upminster 2 minutes later), reducing the headway for the Aldgate run to a probably impossible 2 1/2 minutes....

That would be tight - but that's all part of route planning. Rejig the route so it works. Frustrating I know but there's not really an alternative other than have a big door hold.
