Time for an update :)

Central: Ealing Broadway to Stratford
Circle: Hammersmith to Wood Lane / Paddington to Aldgate / High Street Ken to Edgware Road / Gloucester Road - Cannon Street
District: Ealing Broadway / Richmond / Wimbledon to Cannon Street (and I think I've been to Tower Hill but I've forgotten :() / Tower Hill to Aldgate East (that was pointless

I've still got the following to do:

Bakerloo: Maida Vale to Harrow & Wealdstone
Central: West Ruslip/Ealing Broadway to White City & Stratford to Epping/Hainault Loop
District: Richmond to Gunnersbury
Hammersmith & City: Bromley-by-Bow to Barking
Jubilee: Finchley Central to Neasden
Metropolitan: Harrow-on-the-Hill to Amersham/Chesham/Watford
Northern: Camden Town to High Barnet/Mill Hill East
Piccadilly: Caledonian Road to Cockfosters
Overground: Clapham Junction to Queens Road Peckham / Clapham Junction to Kensington Olympia / Richmond to Willesden Junction / GOBLIN
DLR: Canning Town to Woolwich Arsenal

As you can see, it's mainly just the 'ends' and some missing branches of the Overground. I plan to get a fair bit of the missing links done in a couple of weeks when I have a day off, however I'm stumped as to how go about it route-wise.

Any suggestions chaps?

all of it apart from the recent Piccadilly line extension to terminal 5, and the Watford branch of the Metropolitan, the reason for that is that there is a curve allowing units to go straight from Amersham onto the branch, and it always used to be the case, (my imformation may be a few years out of date), that the only passenger train to traverse this curve left Amersham about 0530 AM

Oh and I've never done the West London line from Willesdon junction to Clapham Junction.
And Stratford to Canning Town via Abbey road or the new river crossing there.

It is still the case.

For a period of time last year, there was a scheduled movement at around 9pm, but this has since disappeared off the WTT.

If only it were more useful for the tube challenge, then I'd have a decent excuse to use it ;)

Finished work early yesterday and managed to finish the Northern Line (last station to do was Mill Hill East), the Central (Ruislip to Acton) and the DLR (Prince Regent to Beckton)!
Did the Piccadilly: last week, travelling down to Heathrow. Used the free interchange offered by Heathrow Express as an excuse to travel on the 332s and 360s.

Just have the Overground from Harrow & Wealdstone to Watford Junction and then the Metropolitan from Harrow on the Hill to Amersham, Chesham and Watford.

I've still got the following to do:

Bakerloo: Maida Vale to Harrow & Wealdstone
[*]Travel up to Harrow on Bakerloo, then get bus from the station down to Harrow on the Hill, can do Metropolitan from there
Central: West Ruslip/Ealing Broadway to White City & Stratford to Epping/Hainault Loop
[*]No real shortcuts for Epping/Hainault Loop.
District: Richmond to Gunnersbury
[*]Could be done after DLR (getting SE train from Woolwich to Waterloo East (might need change at London Bridge/Lewisham), use SWT to Richmond, District Line, up.
Hammersmith & City: Bromley-by-Bow to Barking
[*]Noticed you haven't done the GOBLIN
Jubilee: Finchley Central to Neasden
Metropolitan: Harrow-on-the-Hill to Amersham/Chesham/Watford
Northern: Camden Town to High Barnet/Mill Hill East
[*]There is a bus that links High Barnet and Cockfosters together (384 I think), however it goes all around the houses
Piccadilly: Caledonian Road to Cockfosters
[*]see Northern
Overground: Clapham Junction to Queens Road Peckham / Clapham Junction to Kensington Olympia / Richmond to Willesden Junction / GOBLIN
[*]After doing the District to Gunnersbury (reversal back to Richmond?), get Overground to Willesden, OG back down to Clapham Junction then SLL
DLR: Canning Town to Woolwich Arsenal
[*]See District, could even be done after H&C, changing at West Ham
Hope that helps!

My tube coverage isn't great. :oops:

Bakerloo
: Lambeth North to Kensal Green
Central: Liverpool Street to Bethnal Green
Circle: All of it (Victoria to Kings Cross was completed last year; I was ''avoiding the crowds on the Victoria Line'' with my Grandad ;))
District: Victoria to Tower Hill
Hammersmith & City
: Paddington to Kings Cross
Jubilee: None of it.
Metropolitan: Aldgate to Amersham (but no branches yet).
Northern: Leicester Square to Waterloo
Piccadilly: Kings Cross St Pancras to Leicester Square
Victoria: None of it
Waterloo & City: None of it.

Overground: None of it
DLR: None of it.

Was hoping to go to London this summer to do a bit more of the tube and the Overground but haven't done so. :|

Did the challenge in 1990 and visited the entire network as it stood then in one day.

Since then done every Underground addition (apart from T5) and all of the DLR.

Not done the cable car or certain bits of London Overground since it's been London Overground. (Don't think I've ever done GOB at all).

Have done a couple of non-standard bits of track: Kennington loop and the lines into London Road and Morden depots. My favourite though was a through train out of Aldwych!

I recognise your name... you did a Class B didn't you? Wonder if anyone has done a 'B' attempt since?

Has anyone managed the Bank Shunt on the DLR? ;)

I might be finishing the northern Northern Line on my next couple of trips, considering a move so need to check out some areas.

Pretty poor from me, but my excuse is living 300+ miles away
Paddington to Euston Square
Euston to East Finchley
Paddington to Victoria
Paddington to Embankment
Euston to Oxford Circus
I also travelled on the DLR to an Ice Hockey match (London Knights) around 2000-2001 kind of time although I don't recall which stations were used.

I had no idea what 'Class B' even was, being only 13 and all. I think it was a couple of years later that the Guinness Book of Records firmed up the rules.

No way was I ever going to do it again though!

How come? Did you enjoy it?
I enjoyed the feeling of achievement and the moments where I was able to sit down and relax and enjoy a long unbroken run on an interesting bit of route. Most of the centre was a nightmare though - getting out at almost every stop either to interchange or move a carriage further up the train to improve my position... esp. during the rush hour.

I also know that I'm not fit enough now to stand a chance!

Went up to Epping and down to Beckton today.
Also did Finchley Road to Bond Street on the Jubilee Line, not realising I needed from West Hampstead southbound :roll:
Lovely day in London today, even had my lunch in the partly-opened Olympic Park.
