All the Actons

Post by RJSRdg »

I see Geoff has now come up with a new mini-Challenge:

Seems a nice one as it stays well clear of Zone 1 (indeed of being 'Underground' at all) so hopefully less crowded trains and stations.

Might think of giving this one a go, especially since Geoff got caught out!

So - I made even more of a mess of it than Geoff did! I struggled to even get to my starting station, then got lost on an OSI that resulted in my missing not one but two Overground trains. To cap it all, I forgot to stop the watch at the final station. Watch stopped on 1:16:29 although I was probably in reality under 1:15 and had I not got lost could possibly have managed it in under 45 minutes.

Some horrible pelican crossings and getting held up at a level crossing didn't help either!

I'd been hoping that we got East Acton in an R15 while the platform work was carrying on. Though it might catch a few people out :twisted:

Stress fracture in my foot has (finally) healed, so looking for a few gentle challenges to do to start getting back into things. This one looks perfect for me! Will try to avoid the Acton Central level crossing (got stuck there a number of times when cycling).
Not a plus one :wink:
