    Tee-hee, it sounds like I'm talking about smooching, but I'm not!

    125: Central Finchley - Winchmore Hill (in one go)
    W9: Southgate - Chase Farm Hospital
    329: Turnpike Lane - Enfield
    53: Trafalgar Square - Plumstead Station (in one go, many times on the night bus...)

    Picadilly Line: Cockfosters - Heathrow
    Northern Line: High Barnet - Morden
    Waterloo & City ;)

    How 'bout you?

    (This very blatantly gives away the area I grew up in :oops: :D)

    Euston to Glasgow is probably a longer journey than those. :hmm:

    Done that a few times - takes bloody ages.

    I've done the 329 and W9 (and W8 for what it's worth) lots of times. I've also done the whole 149, 349 and 279 routes which gives away that I'm from the same area as you but from the wrong side of the tracks :cool:

    I've accidentally done the entire length of the Northern line a few times, although I was only intending to go from Tooting Bec to Stockwell...

    I'd been at a mates place, left late after much booze & other intoxicants, fell asleep on the tube, woke up in High Barnet, switched tracks, got on southbound, promptly fell asleep, woke up in Morden, then proceeded to repeat the cycle until getting kicked off the train in High Barnet as the tube was shutting. Spent another 3 hours on various night buses before finally getting back to Stockwell, something like 6 hours after leaving Tooting....:rolleyes:

    Crispy The following psytrance is baṉned: All

    Brixton - Walthamstow is an easy win
    Paddington - Carmarthen a few times (that's as far as a direct train goes anyway. I've been to the real ends of the line in Pembrokeshire plenty of times, but that means changing)

    I was kinda just talking London routes, but if we're going national then I did Euston to Fort William :cool:

    Also, London Bridge to Uckfield.

    Oh, and Bank/Stratford to Woolwich Arsenal. How'd I forget that, I do it almost weekly?! :facepalm: :D

    What about the letter buses ?

    Meant to go down the river from W. Arsenal to Hampton Court over the summer (would involve at least one change) but never got round to it. Mebbe next year.

    All the way would be to Mallaig surely

    On a similar note I've done Paddington to Severn Beach
  21. Lord Camomile

    Lord Camomile Lemonade socialist

    Not direct from Euston, I don't think? Anyway, I got on at the start of the route and got off at its last stop, which is what counts here.

    Did want to go to Mallaig during that trip but didn't fit it in, only got as far as Glenfinnan.

    Oh well, in that case I've also been on a 125 from Paddington that terminated at Hayes and Harlington due to a mechanical problem.

    Running down the ramp at East Croydon rushing to catch what I thought was a London Bridge train...hmmm there seems to be a lot more space on this train than I was expecting...then it starts moving in the wrong direction...oops. It ended up being a non-stop to Brighton.

    So I guess Brighton to Victoria is my "all the way" journey. (and very late for work).

    I recognise a lot of those routes...used to live on Mayday Rd (1987-1990) the moved to Shirley (1990-2003).
    I believe I did the whole of the 250 route Croydon to Brixton a couple of times back in the day when there was a train strike.
