thanks Nigel, shouldn't my latest time be in third place though, not fourth?

also - who was the 13 year old kid a while back to reportedly have done it - did we get any more info from him?

Surely 16:39 is slower than 16:38? :)

No.

I tried contacting him via the other forum where he posted, but got no response - I don't have full details or a name, so couldn't include him in the list.

Kevin and I are disappointed at not breaking the 17 hour mark which was well on untill the last couple of changes.

Our time was 17hours 11mins 49sec. A new PB for Kevin.

We had a similar story - we looked like we'd get sub 17 too and stumbled upon what should have been a 1 min onto a Ken O train, but the District line really cost us dear then and on the next few changes. We ended up with 17:18:18, a new PB for Glen, Andrew and myself and gave Rhys his first completion

I met someone on the RailUK challenge who apparently knows 'Trainboy98', so I asked him if he could find out anything about this mystery attempt.

Thanks for updating with yesterday's times.

I believe you actually have been knocked out of top ten to 11th place although i can neither confirm the date or time of this attempt took place and no its not a ******** 1 or 2 attempt.

Sam is in the top ten until someone publicly announces a faster time. I disagree with the concept of keeping times secret, and I hope that the attempt you mention is now revealed properly and fully.

Oh let me guess, it must be the elusive Adham Fisher. Well I'll take that with a pinch of salt :)
