    Winners were
    7x142
    5x143
    12x150
    2x153
    1x67

    I did a lot of walking, so not as many trains / stations as others might have done in the same time.

    Lebanon Road was done at just after midnight as I happened to be in the area and took an opportunistic stop. I then slept and did the other three in the afternoon.
