Andi and Steve,

Is your new FNC record awaiting adjudication by Guinness World Records or have you not submitted it? Almost 30mins off our time is some achievement.
Hi Clive,

Our record attempt initially got rejected by Guinness World Records on the basis that we didn't take a photo to correspond with every single logbook entry, which is a ludicrous requirement on their behalf, which has never been requested on any attempt that I have previously made. As such an appeal has been made to GWR, and we are awaiting the result of this appeal (although to be honest I don't expect them to change their mind). I will be pretty gutted if the appeal doesn't succeed though!

Hope that clarifies the situation,

Steve

I've checked with Harry. Olympia was visited by Overground (not District line), so unfortunately does not qualify for Top Times list.

I've been made aware of a completion from last year, which I have now included in the top times list.

I notice they say they found a route on the Internet - the only route I know of that's available on the internet is Labyrinth, which is no longer possible (without alteration) on a weekday. I wonder if they did theirs on a Saturday?
