Interesting idea, especially with the stopping patterns in different directions and the Doubletree aspect. It feels a bit like Tramlink: a quite simple underlying network complicated by a few subtleties. I haven't checked operating hours for the various routes/piers, but from memory some of them were a bit odd which would be another complicating factor.

I think I'm the only person to have used a Thames Clipper on an R15....

Looking at the Thames Clipper website:

RB6 (needed for Putney to Battersea Power Station) only runs weekday mornings and evenings.
RB2 only goes east of Greenwich at weekends.
RB1 only goes east of North Greenwich on weekday mornings, evenings, or weekends.

As a starter, I reckon I've found a 2:24 route.

How about visiting all the stations in Zones 1 and 2, without leaving the network, but avoiding Bank. As in you must not go to Bank (or Monument), must not pass through, and certainly must not interchange there.

I think this about a lot of suggestions, but especially so about this one.... why?! And also, you're not visiting all the Z1 & Z2 stations if you don't go to Bank or Monument :wink:

A (slightly) better idea - a Zone 1, with the start station and, say, 5 banned stations drawn half an hour before the start.
