Whilst it would clearly be both inappropriate and inadvisable to attempt a FNC in current circumstances, I notice the Mayor of London has now announced that the Tube will be running a Saturday service on weekdays - if this applies to all lines, it will mean a much greater service frequency to Kensington Olympia!

You say less people, but I had a go at one of the "alternative" challenges a few days ago and had to stand for a good chunk of Jubilee line because it was so busy.

There was also a service interval of >4 minutes on the Northern Line, which would slow you down more than reduced passengers wouls speed you up, if replicated across the network.
Tramlink: 2:07:14 (301219)
