Chalk Farm
Gravel Hill
Harrow and Wealdstone
Headstone Lane
Marble Arch
Mudchute
Sandilands
Stonebridge Park
Totteridge and Whetstone

You need to do it at least twice, then work out Aggregate times.

That is quite a good idea. Or you add two different peoples time. For example

Person A starts at Headstone Lane and finishes at Sandilands

Person B starts at Leytonstone and finishes at Marble Arch.

But you can't both start and finish at the same stations.

The trouble with that one is that you have three close together up the Bakerloo/Overground (Headstone Lane, H&W, Stonebridge Park), and two very close together on Tramlink (Sandilands and Gravel Hill) - with Mudchute tying in easily to those as well. So if competitors could start anywhere of their choosing, the only real opportunity for variety would be in getting from Totteridge & Whetstone to Mudchute, and even that would likely to be down the Northern Line to Bank and pick up the DLR there.

I really don't see the point you are trying to make with Sandilands and Mudchute.. in my eyes they are ages away from each other and I can't think of a straightforward way to go between them.

I think the idea is you would stay on the DLR to Lewisham, then get Southeastern to Elmers End to pick up the tram.

How about the NR challenge (as an alternate to the all lines challenge and the 16 lines challenge which includes the dlr and LO etc.)
this will involve one stop on a southern service one stop on a southeastern serviced one stop on a thameslink service etc.
Or how about one stop on each train type in greater london ones top on a class 357 C2C one stop on a class 387 great northern or GWR etc.
