Oh - that makes me very confused, as your route (minus the stops), but quicker! Then again, I started at 07:46, so maybe your time would be better!
Personal Best - 264 Stations in 19 hours 37 minutes.

Well, I guess the field is now open for anyone to try it for real. Be interesting so see what it really takes. Whether nearer 2:23 or 2:46!
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.
(I really ought to change this; no-one understands it out of context.)
Personal record: 270 Stations in 9 minutes and 3 seconds

Sorry- I missed 'is the same as mine' after your route (minus the stops)!

This has got me inspired - I'm planning many UK challenges (Manchester Metrolink, Sheffield Supertram). However, some are only 1 line, so in not bothering with them!

Good, you get no respect for doing the Midland Metro!
Held some Alternative Challenge records for a long time.

Or Edinburgh Trams, Glasgow Metro or Blackpool Trams!

Yes to Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Croydon and Tyne & Wear, though! (And Paris & Berlin)

It's the National Tramway Museum in Derbyshire - there are about four stops on a line around a mile long. I've done it twice - there and back again!
