I don't think they have. All three of us have been alive since the day we were born, and continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Having had a look at where the new stations will be on a street map, Nine Elms is fairly close to Vauxhall and BPS is fairly close to Battersea Park and Queenstown Road. With the possible exception of Vauxhall, I don't think these connections will be that useful on FNCs but they might provide interesting moves in R15s.

The new branch might become one of the less-liked sections on a FNC, especially as it's only getting 16tph.

I'm leaning towards Vauxhall too. Don't know yet when I will get the chance to test it out though

It's been released internally over the past few days, haven't had much of a chance to look through. Presumably the public release will be soon

(also, YAY my account still exists!!)

I'm planning on heading down to Battersea on the first Monday and trying to set the first zone 1 time for the new configuration. Anyone else fancy meeting up for a mini challenge?

I'm considering going down before work - will try and figure out if the times work for a z1, First thought is it'd be too tight

Well, Monday 20th September is a momentous day for the Tube Challenge, because it's the first time it'll be reset since 12th October 2008 when Wood Lane station opened. :)

I wonder if anyone is going to attempt to set a new time on 20th September despite the fact that Heathrow Terminal 4 is closed, and also South Kensington is closed as far as the Piccadilly Line is concerned.
