It is still the case.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to go straight from Amersham onto the branch, and it always used to be the case, (my imformation may be a few years out of date), that the only passenger train to traverse this curve left Amersham about 0530 AM
Hope that helps!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
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
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 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.I recognise your name... you did a Class B didn't you? Wonder if anyone has done a 'B' attempt since?
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.How come? Did you enjoy it?
Went up to Epping and down to Beckton today.This is where I HAVEN'T been yet:
Victoria: Stockwell - Brixton
Central: Buckhurst Hill - Epping
Jubilee: West Hampstead - St Johns Wood
DLR: Canning Town - Beckton
Tramlink: - All of it
