Guinness World Records *do* track the other records; it's just that they aren't publicised in the same way as the major ones. It's just that only a very small number are actually publicised in any manner other than among the archive material. This is why the Tube Forum's records are so prominent - they are the most easily-accessed records available.There are only offical (guiness world record) records for London and New York, however tubeforum.co.uk/forum have a list of records on other networks that their membera have unoffically competed in.
I would hazard a guess at the following (or the reverse):Wonder what the route was for the Tyne and Wear Metro? Main problem is the fact you need to double back so often.
Technically speaking isn't the Shields Ferry part of the Mertro. It does appear on the maps after all. Or is this purely from an interchange point of view?Aye, just depends on if they used other forms of transport as well. With one bus and one rail move I could probably do it in around 3 hours.
It's debateable. The ferry control used to be from South Gosforth Conctrol Centre, before everything moved to South Shields. Think the main reason that the ferry is shown on maps is to prevent tourists from thinking they have to travel all the way via Monument when they want to get from North to South Shields.Technically speaking isn't the Shields Ferry part of the Mertro.

I've been asked to confirm that the record is apparently 2h32. To me that sounds pretty good but not unbeatable (although that's coming from someone who has only done Central to Sunderland and back).It's certainly been done on the T&W.
