I have booked my tickets for this. My best route is 45 stations, although that includes a couple of tight connections that may or may not be achievable in reality.

I'm currently doing a long-term, expanded version of this, which I will post about in a new topic a bit later on.

I'm going to give a tentative response to this...

Purely because I'm in Redditch the weekend before and I don't know if I can handle too many midlanders...

I am happy to collaborate with someone on this. I work in the area so can possibly test some routes beforehand.

AsK Phil brown,GreatkinRat or Adham to explain their route we got 37 points i think we visited 32 different station so hence 32 points and some stations like bloxwich north out of the way were worth extra an 2 points if visited.
