    Have done the goblin but not the new stock tbh. Heathrow pods saw a thread on that, will look that up. Staying in Wembley so Queens Park is doable.

    You could do the eastern end of the Central line. I recently did Stratford to Woodford via Hainault and then Woodford to Epping, then back into central London. I found it quite enjoyable, but the 1992 tube stock isn't the best.

    You could also do some of the suburban rail services. I've not done too many of them, so possibly someone else could recommend the best ones?
