What makes a tough set is engineering works which occur most weekends. North Acton is a pain if central part of the central line is closed.

Yes, the stations mentioned on the Z2/3 boundary almost all get harder to visit in the event of engineering work.

I seem to remember that on one of the more recent challenges, the Bakerloo was closed south of Willesden
Junction. Perhaps fortunately, WJ didn't appear on the list!

That wouldn't be too difficult, surely, assuming the Overground was still running to Euston?

IIRC the closure was due to engineering work at Queens Park affecting both the Bakerloo line and LO.
