I don't think the date has been "officially" released yet but looking back at previous dates, Friday 16th November 2018 looks an almost certain bet.

Although starting at Heathrow is what Kevin wants to do I'm going to start at either Kensington olympia or röding Valley. I like doing something differant added advantages is not paying for the travel card. 😊🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺 More money for beer

I'm tempted by this one because it's one I ought to be able to complete, even with my dodgy ankles. But I can't help thinking that the number of lengthy double backs involved would make this a VERY long challenge!

Not as long as I thought, from the original start time I had at 0502 (now planning to move back approx. 6 hours) was finishing at Stanmore 0240 so under 22 hours :o

Not sure how it would work with an 11am start - yes, there's Night Tube but that's pretty useless for an FNC...

I've yet to find a use for the night tube in a FNC as there's not a way to fill the space between "day" trains without becoming inefficient.

Once you worry less about that and throw in great big double backs, it's quite possible to fill the gaps between "day" running trains
