Back in the seventies when a few of us used to chase after car 10306 on the Northern, a few managed to do the Kennington loop in it. Not me unfortunately.

As far as the map goes, the whole thing! Never really bothered ticking off stations though, just lines.

When I (with my family) go to London, which is not very often, as I am the 'navigator,' I always try to cover new sections of line, without making the line too circuitous. For example, when going on Thursday from Feltham, to Kew Gardens and onwards to Westfield and Marble Arch, I ensured that on the stretch around Kew, we used both a district and LO train. Then after going to Marble Arch area, instead of reversing the route (Mbl Arch - Wht Cty - Wd Ln - H'smith - RMD - FEL), I decided to go to Waterloo and cover some more track (between WAT and Richmond). ;)

Done all the tube apart from...

The Heathrow loop and Amersham.

DLR - still need to do Woolwich Arsenal extension
and Stratford - Stratford international.

No Cable car for me..far too high above terra firma!

Plus all the river ferries too..including the converted police
boat that goes from North Greenwich to Container city.

Ring 'em up an they come and get you...all for £2, great experience!

Only been on a few stops of the Croydon tramlink and missing a few
overland stops south of the border.

Even did Broad Street to Watford back in the day... :(

Done all the tube, including Watford Curve, including Victoria reverse siding (Victoria Line) and Northumberland Park depot shed in 2002.

Just need a crossovers (most which won't get done!) and a lot of stations mainly out of Z2.

I'm not normally a track basher but eventually I'd done most of it anyway. A couple of years ago I went to Heathrow on the Piccadilly then last year I went to Morden out of curiosity on a quiet day. Looking at the map I then realised that the Hainault loop was the only part I had not covered over the years. So this January I was on the Central when a Hainault train came in, so off I went. Naturally I finished off with a Woodford shuttle to complete the set. Shame there is no badge I can get really.

Have done the bulk of it, except little snippets like Heathrow T5, Vic line from Stockwell to Brixton, the new overground link to Clapham as well as Euston to Queens Park. Been many a year since I've been to Upminster, Epping and a few other termini. I feel some new trips coming up!

Have done Kennington loop, infamous for signal B36! Missed Aldwych and Ongar, but bagged Shoreditch and the old ELL. I have colleagues who worked it back in the day, they say it was. Great line to work on. A family atmosphere.

The vast majority on all lines apart from the Northern. Not including bits parallel to non-TfL lines, I believe the only areas I need are as follows:

Central: Epping to Woodford; West Ruislip to South Ruislip
District: Kensington (Olympia)*; Upminster to Barking (:shock:)
Jubilee: Stanmore to Wembley Park (also Wembley Park to West Hampstead which I have done on the Metropolitan)
Metropolitan: Croxley Curve*
Northern: Mill Hill East; Edgware to Camden Town; Morden to Clapham North
Piccadilly: Cockfosters to Arnos Grove
Victoria: Walthamstow Central to Blackhorse Road
LOROL: Surrey Quays to Queens Road Peckham (i.e. the new bit :|)
Tramlink: Beckenham Junction to Arena; New Addington to Sandilands

I have no idea why I am still missing Upminster to Barking. I must have done it 100 times on the southern pair of tracks, but never on the District...

* denotes limited service

First Capital Connect: City Thameslink to Wimbledon

I managed to cover almost all of LU at a leisurely pace over three half-days. The only bits left I have not managed to cover on the existing network are:
  • Watford North Chord on the Met;
  • Moorgate Bays;
  • Liverpool Street to Aldgate on H&C (engineering works only);

The last one on the list is unlikely to happen again now that Circle have been extended to Hammersmith, as further such workings will probably be branded Circle Line services.
