The London Overground challenge has been rather quiet lately, but news has reached me that the 84 station configuration (including Battersea Park) has a new record holder.

06:52:14 by Aubrey Morandarte on 09/04/14.

Well done to Aubrey and this is now the time to beat.

This record hasn't stood for very long as Aubrey has beaten his own time (this time with Lewis Nagle, who didn't make Battersea Park on the 9th April).

Therefore the new record is now 06:40:20 by Aubrey Morandarte and Lewis Nagle on 27/05/2014.

Not long left to claim this record before the changes on the 31st May will result in the challenge starting again from square one with the addition of the West Anglia lines and Romford- Upminster shuttle.

If you wish to challenge the current record, you have just over three weeks to do so.

I might give the records a try after exams are finished.

Question for tractakid, will the Posh Challenge get a reset with the addition of Silver Street, or is silver not posh?

And also as regards the Posh and Royal challenges, will they include TfL Rail and pick up Manor Park and Seven Kings respectively?

Just for confirmation, the London Overground challenge record has been reset (as from 31st May 2015). Times for the previous old 83/84 station configuration will not be accepted after this date.

The station count is now 112 (includes Battersea Park) with the addition of the Chingford, Enfield Town/Cheshunt and Romford-Upminster lines.

There is already a time to beat, this being 10:24:29 by Glen Bryant.
