I've been going through it over the last few days putting bus routes on for connections etc.

I've already counted for Edgware Road and Paddington. Are there any other stations on the network twice. I've done myself a list and I can only get it to 269 stations.
Are you counting Bank / Monument as one?

So, the Victoria line had severe delays on it. By the time I got to the NW corner I was unable to complete all. I managed 267/270, missing out Watford, Croxley and Chesham. The rest of my connections had a maximum wait time of 5 minutes so i'm happy with that. My time for 267 was 18:52:12. I'm planning another attempt for April but i'll make a new thread and I'm planning a slightly different route. The route i took this time was the reverse of the 2009 labyrinth / world record route.

Bad luck with your attempt on Friday, but that's the nature of tube challenging.
If you did the reverse labyrinth route, how did you visit Kensington (Olympia) by Underground?

I'm sure you learnt loads even so. I only just completed my first with one train to spare and the benefit of having world record holder Andi with me. He spotted an unplanned change at West Ham which saved time, otherwise I may have been too late for the last train of the day!

As I wasn't going for a record attempt or anything I 'cheated' and used the overground. I am planning a route that use one of the 7 or 8 trains a day to do it properly though. Trying to plan a route that dosen't involve finishing or starting in NW corner. But from what I can see it means quite a few repeated stations.
