But presumably still needs to include the large group who went round with Geoff a couple of weeks ago who made 269 stations (Olympia done by Overground) and the Sam (Gunner) attempt around the same time (but not clear how they did the Heathrows and Olympia).

269 is for completions before the Wood Lane non-reset, not for non completions.

How many stations are there at the mo? I'm going through my route and counting 269.
Current best: 19:51:10 (2014). Hopefully that will be broken in 2018 :-)
