well in the years past we have done so many routes I do suggest this time though we do or try to do the non out of station connections. we could even do it at absolutely no cost.

I will be giving this a miss this year having done the last 10 years or so as you can only go to the "donation" well so often and also there should be a full network early next year at The Winter Tube Olympics....

Also this isn't normally done a "team" so any route goes really....

I like the sound of that, a non-OSI route would be different to something I have done.

Is this going to be a no out of station runs route or a no barriers route? I'm thinking along the lines of Euston and Marylebone tube to NR...

I am out of this too, run out of annual leave for the year!
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

I've got a more conventional non-OSI route - Heathrow T4 to Edgware in 21:20:45, ticking off Ken Oly at the early hour of 0638.

It's also got 30 minutes of slack - you'd change the finish from 0222 Edgware to 0307 Edgware (by rescheduling the Jubilee to Stanmore from 9pm to just before the end) but if you're running late that would allow you to complete.

I think that's a good idea the main 2 of 4 potential sticky areas gone quite quickly.
