I dont have any idea about WTT for november but i suppose a good idea would be to have a starting and finishing point then work from that.

I think a new PB should always be kept in mind when doing the FNC, otherwise it seems pointless. Chesham finish instead of Amersham maybe?

The problem with an Upminster start is where to stay as Barking & Hornchurch are the nearest places with a hotel.
When I did the 17.06 with an Upminster start I stayed at the travelodge in Barking. Catching the 05.25 train to Upminster Starting at 05.45 But this was before the problem of the Ken Oly trains. I do have a route But It would need an exhibition service for it to work.

Did Upminster work better with an ELL configuration? Because an Upminster start kinda leaves the jubilee extension isolated.
