I assume he's not counting Blackfrairs which has been closed all year. I wonder how many people, in total have indeed been to every station....

My guess is about 100 or so tube challengers (people how have attempted the record), few thousand bored Londoners, and tens of thousands of LU staff

I recon your numbers are hugely overestimated! Honestly, who, apart from the local and/or insane people, wants to go to Mill Hill East?

Your right, thinking about it the average LU staff member is unlikely to visit ALL the London Underground stations.

But it would only be a valid time if he didn't travel anywhere by car, taxi, bike or other non-scheduled transport throughout the year. But knowing DG, he probably didn't :) .

Are we doing almost completions as well or not bothering? If so, I've got a new PB, 246 in 16 hours 10 minutes and 22.1 seconds (being precise there :wink: )

I've only got data on completions, so that's what I'm showing in the table at the start of this thread. I know that there are some completions which those involved have chosen not to divulge, so even this data is incomplete.

Here's a graph containing all of the completion times of the current configuration against time. Red dots indicate world record times.

Can you produce that with time as the X axis?

Make it interactive so that we can hover over a dot to see who it is! :P

Seriously though, nice graph, but any correlation is extremely weak.

Well up to January this year there is a pretty solid correlation.

However, this year seems to have put a spanner in the works somewhat.

Which is really strange as we all know the service now is much more reliable than it has ever been. :roll:
2 attempts
2 completions
(Not getting much quicker)
