Covent Garden's other two lifts are out of action, so that's out as a starting station again. Other than that, nowhere near as messed up as last year.

TCR would make a great starting station, too!

Holds some alternative challenge records. Not sure which ones.

I'm up for this, would depend on what date and also travel from Lowestoft down to Liverpool Street as to whether I can give it a red-hot go :) 29th May is the last day of half-term break for Summer 1, so it might just work in my favour :)

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- sadly, not no more!

I don't think anyone would have any objections to you being the BOZO.

Really up to you Tangy if you want to do it.
