Yes, I will add in that time (I edited the page, before I read this post). Am going back now to re-edit and upload it.

Similar to before, will there be a separate list for attempts covering the 111 stations excluding Battersea Park?

Curiosity, and to make sure you've remembered it!! Most full attempts that I know of have started at Battersea Park; though I am aware of one that used an evening train. Thing is, using the evening train effectively locks in your finish time right from the start!

So this will be your first challenge?

Maybe, it depends how long I am in London for next time I go there! I did have routes for loads, but then my laptop broke and I may have lost them all! I can remember Bottle, Mouse, Z1, All Lines, DLR and Tramlink routes, though! This was done by pen and paper!

It didn't lock in my finishing time. I finished later than expected.
