As I understand it, no, as they need to get trains out of Lille depot and back in.

Would I replacement bus service be legit for an attempt?

Your guess is as good as mine, but since the rules make reference to "track" and "doors" I'd go for no.

I wasn#t tube challenging back then, but I seem to recall a time where you had to use one to get to part of Heathrow

agreed on that its 800m now unless u going to Sprint it all the world record is 100sec .91 so u have to be around 30s of the fastest man on the world and I can't remember him having to dodge passengers and get out his oyster card. so that put ur loop back 20 mins perhaps causing problems?

I'll probably get someone to do a gentle bit of door holding if we're late - it's all gonna be trialed first

That said, I've done Hanger Lane to Park Royal in 2 and a half, which is about the same distance - so it might be possible! But then getting into Leytonstone station takes longer than it seems...

Indeed!! My first GWR (with Sam, the one that broke Geoff and Neil's by 5 seconds) required us to visit T4 by replacement bus.

judging by the write up of this attempt https://vimeo.com/pouringbeans waiting for the bus 307 at high bar net seems waste of 6 mins.

That was what I was thinking of I think.

Question is, would it be legit when there's a timetabled tube service at certain times of the day?

Some of your runs look tight unless you're Mo Farah.

I might try to rejig Uxbridge - trains often get held outside Uxbridge so tight changes are a gamble, but nearly ten minutes is wasting time.

No, all stations must be visited by London Underground. The T4 replacement bus was a rare exception - I think someone at Guinness was having a 'funny five minutes'!
