The only problem with the Rising Sun is they may well have their Christmas Tree up by the dartboard again.
Soon to be yet another forum train driver

I wonder if this new ELL timetable is any better than the old one, 9 times out of 10, I DON'T want to go to blooming New Cross!

A couple of queries regarding "all lines" part of this challenge. If you are using the top side of the Circle and going anti-clockwise there is a couple of things you can use to help you find out which C stock is which.

More specifically, the blinds are different depending on what line it is operating, an H&C train should be showing "Hammersmith via Paddington" whereas a Circle should be showing "Circle line to Hammersmith." Also the on train tannoy (if switched on) will state what line it is on e.g "this is a H&C train to Hammersmith." Can't go wrong!

I will be in attendance for this, to try and catch up from my last poor performance!
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

In my experience they all show Hammersmith via Paddington, so I wouldn't rely on that method.
