DLR Challenge - Summer 2021

Post by TwoobileeLine » 08 Apr 2021, 10:47

Hey there,

I was wondering if anyone has any tips or route suggestions for a DLR Full Network challenge. Ideally I want to start at Stratford, as its my nearest DLR Station, but honestly I could start anywhere on the network in theory.

With the DLR there are two main routes which can be run in either direction so there is quite a lot of flexibility. I will leave you to do the research on what they are (there is plenty of info on the forum) :D If you still aren't sure, look at the London Rail and Tube map (the one that has all the NR stuff on) and use Google Maps to its full advantages. That's basically how I came up with my first ever route and got under 2 hours.

The Archway doubleback definitely saves some time.

I assume they mean going up to Stratford International via the West Ham branch, then coming back down the line via the older Stratford branch, which would form a kind of Archway
