    Lost somewhere within Bank-Monument tube station,
    I was thinking about how much of the London Underground map (including Overground and DLR) I've covered over the years. This is what I've done so far.

    Bakerloo: Warwick Avenue to the Elephant.
    Central: Shepherd's Bush to Debden (excluding the Hainault loop which I haven't touched so far)
    Circle: All of it.
    District: Tower Hill to Wimbledon, and up to Edgware Road.
    Hammersmith and City: Hammersmith to Mile End.
    Jubilee: Baker Street to Stratford.
    Metropolitan: Aldgate to Baker Street :oops:
    Northern: The entire Bank branch, and the Charing Cross branch up to Waterloo. Haven't been further north than Camden Town.
    Piccadilly: Finsbury Park to Earls Court
    Victoria: Vauxhall to Walthamstow Central
    Waterloo and City: All of it. :p

    I also did the old East London line back in August 2007, from Whitechapel to Canada Water. Quaint little line back then. I wish I'd been older to have had more trips on it before the upgrade, but hey ho. :)

    Overground: East London line from Canada Water to Dalston Junction. North London line from Caledonian Road and Barnsbury, to Willesden Junction.

    DLR: The entire original Stratford branch, Bank to Greenwich, and Poplar to Cusom House.

    On Saturday, I have plans to go up to Archway on the Northern. After catching the number 41 bus to Turnpike Lane, I should clear a little bit more of the Piccadilly. And I intend to finally clear Tower Gateway, which I should have done back in February 2008. Got there on the day, and found out that the service had been suspended due to signal failure. <(

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section of the forum.

    Probably 150 stations, spent a day on the underground when I was a teenager doing loads of stations, but no real planning went in to it!

    Still got the majority of the North West of the network to do and the DLR to Beckton. Probably will do the Emirates Air Line this weekend

    EDIT: Not sure about this weekends engineering works, but when I did the Piccadilly up to Cockfosters, I got the 384 bus over to High Barnet, could help you clear the lines faster! :)

    Complete Circle and H&C
    Jubliee I've done Baker Street to Stratford (and possibly Charing X)

    Actually scrub that comment below - I was looking at the wrong month and do believe it is running this weekend

    No eastern branch n the DLR this weekend so if you were hoping to do that as well as the airline you're out of luck.

    I have been to every station on the tube map. In addition, I have done Battersea Park on the London Overground.

    I plan on doing 270 of them again... on Friday!

    Never been on the Tramlink though!

    Or the stupid cable car... why is that even on the map? lol

    I've covered all of the LU lines, including Ongar, Aldwych & Jubilee line to Charing Cross. Also the Bakerloo line as far as Harrow & Wealdstone (didn't do the extension to Watford Junction by tube).

    I've also covered all of Croydon Tramlink and all of the DLR except the line between Stratford & Canning Town (but I did cover this in it's former life as part of the North London Line.

    I need some of the new bits of the Overground (Dalston to Broad St was done in the day of 501's & 1 trip on a 313 to the single platform they had at Broad Street just before the line closed.

    Bakerloo - The lot
    Central - Woodford-Shepherd's Bush (I never seem to have time to do the ends)
    Circle - The lot, but not all at once and not necessarily on Circle trains (I'm still in denial about conting Hammersmith)
    District - Most of it except Southfields-Wimbledon (I was watching the tennis that day), Ealing Common-Ealing Broadway (no idea why) and Barking-Mile End. Upminster was part of a big East London track bash I did once, and I was in a hurry to get back, so jumped on the LT&SR. :(
    Hammersmith and City - Royal Oak-Mile End (same problem as above on one end, the other had more to do with the A4 coming into Paddington)
    Jubilee - Everything except an annoying section between Canary Wharf and North Greenwich (too busy doing other things) and the Charing Cross spur (too young when it closed)
    Metropolitan - Everything as far as Rickmansworth, then I ran out of Travelcard zones. Most was on the same Metroland track bash that covered Watford Junction, Stanmore and Uxbridge.
    Northern - All but the Kennington Loop. Also contained in the Metroland track bash (bus between Edgware and Stanmore).
    Piccadilly - King's Cross-Heathrow Loop and T5/Rayners Lane (I did Uxbridge on a Met train)
    Victoria - Walthamstow Hoe Street-Victoria (never quite got round to Brixton
    Waterloo and City - Done many times, a way to avoid the Northern when coming home from Waterloo
    Overground - I've done the old NLL Richmond-North Woolwich, the GOBLIN when it still had 150s (worked in the WLL the same day) and the whole of Euston-Watford Junction (as a part of the Metroland track-bash). None of the ELL, though. Not sure why.
    DLR - The lot, I track-bashed the whole thing with my mum when I was eight (1992), then repeated the process every time it expanded.
    Emirates Cable Car - Got that too.
    Other Routes - Thameslink and GN&City have both been on the Tube Map, so they count too.

    Having live in London for most of my life and taking a keen interest with friends in completing as many lines as possible, it's not surprising I've done as much as I have, although more recent openings are as I'm less of a 'track basher' these days...

    Bakerloo: All (but never Harrow & Wealdstone-Watford Junction)
    Central: All (including Epping-Ongar just before closure, and since re-opening)
    Circle: All, both ways round when it was a Circle and since to Hammersmith.
    District: All
    Hammersmith & City: All
    Jubilee: All (including Charing Cross)
    Metropolitan: All (including Watford North Curve and Chalfont plat 3)
    Northern: All (including Kennington loop - I was legitimately asleep!)
    Piccadilly: All (including Aldwych)
    Victoria: All
    Waterloo & City: All
    DLR: All (including original Island Gardens and Mudchute, and I think I could have done the third side to the Delta but can't confirm this...)
    Overground: Richmond-Stratford, Gospel Oak-Blackhorse Road, Willseden Junction-Clapham Junction, Clapham Junction-Highbury & Islington, Crystal Palace-Whitechapel (also entire ELL pre-conversion)
    Emirates AirLine: All

    The missing Overground sections are now planned for this weekend...

    During my 4 year signal apprenticeship I covered it all. Living near Rayners lane at the time, I remember my week in Upminster well. I wish IPods had been invented back then!

    I remember seeing a lot of disused stations when on nights, and having a good look around what were supposed to be Churchills temporary quarters during the war.

    All of it as well. Managed to buy a ticket from every station as well over the years, including Blake Hall and Trafalgar Square. Priv. singles were only 6p in those days!!

    Not much i'm afraid. :(

    Circle: Tower Hill to Baker Street.
    District: As above- where the Circle and Distric lines share tracks.
    Piccadilly: It was 2003, but I think it was from Kings Cross to South Kensington as I went to the Natural History Museum. I was 8 at the time, so I don't know for sure.
    Victoria: Kings Cross to Victoria.

    Appaling really isn't it! :oops: My coverage of the National Rail network isn't any better. :oops:

    I should have covered a bit more of the Underground after a visit to London this summer. I'm staying in Covent Garden and hoping to go to the Cutty Sark, so that involves a short trip on the Central line and a ride on the DLR! :D

    I've covered everything on each of the lines that appears on the publicly issued map, including multiple times where two different lines use the same tracks.

    Forgot to say, I've walked most of it as well, including all of the tunnels, (nights obviously).

    One Sunday morning stranded on Covent Garden platform I walked through to Leicester Square during during running hours. I got some strange looks emerging on to the platform at Leicester Square. I wonder how many others have walked between stations on a tube section when trains are running?

    Until the recent changes, how difficult was it to cover the section from Watford South Junction to Croxleyhall Junction?
