"All stations visited by a London Underground train"

Post by RJSRdg » 15 Jun 2015, 20:04

I've just remembered that apart from the 270 stations of the FNC, there are another 10 stations in the British Isles that are called at by (ex) London Underground electric trains (not including the recent visit of some LU stock to the Epping-Ongar).

I wonder how long it would take to visit those in addition to a FNC?

8 on the Isle of Wight. If you're not counting Ongar, I'm not sure what the other two are?

Alderney ?

Yes, there is a light railway on the island of Alderney, using an LU train as the coaches (hauled by a diesel).

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