Congratulations! Guinness took their time (and still haven't put it on their site).

Shouldn't it be five Englishmen and a Finn?

Indeed, as I am attending a bus rally on the Sunday.
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Great stuff.

I note that it appeared in yesterday's Metro, but only listed 3 names, not all 6 of you ... ?!?

The Metro seemed to be concentrating on the "held both London and New York records" aspect, which only applies to Andi, Steve and Martin.

I'm guessing as there haven't been any replies about this that it isn't happening?
