Got mine down to 5:11 but it's very tight, probably won't attempt that

Sounds like a risk-taker might win! This is exciting, which strategy will people choose?

My route takes somewhere between 4 and 6 hours, and has between 1 and 10 runs. If you want more detail than that you will have to wait until we've all finished!

I know exactly what your route is. Very clever. I might nick that bit.

You mean go via Mousehole...
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

I think the first run is the tricky one, if I make that and the trains are running to schedule the rest is pretty automatic.....

This is a brilliant challenge for different route options, I keep coming up with new ideas and I'm learning a lot about unusual connections :D
