Seeing as I'm planning on doing the Tyne and Wear Metro on Monday or Tuesday of next week, I decided to look up if there was already a record for it. Hunting around, I had the idea of starting a thread to keep all the record times in one place.

If I've missed any, or any are inaccurate, please let me know and I'll update the list.

tubeguru/moley: would it be possible to sticky this thread, like with the other record times threads? Cheers!

I was in Genoa a few years back. I didn't once go on the metro! Pretty boring though- a single line. I regret not doing it, but I didn't even think about it.

Well except how do we know that Adham's times are the fastest times for doing these systems? We don't. It's quite possible that someone else [local] has set a quicker pace.
