TFL Newham

20th January 2015. A ‘make it up as you go’ route, attempting to visit all the Underground, Overground, DLR and Rail stations in Newham in one run, without crossing paths. Total covered for circuit, 23 miles.

23 mile Newham transport run

23 mile Newham transport run

Of course one knows these things, but it is so much clearer after the run. 1] The North of the borough is covered by rail, the middle by tube, and the South by DLR. 2] There are no [apart from bus] transport links in the geographical centre of the borough.

I think this ‘game’ would be interesting in other boroughs, perhaps as organised events?

Here are the stations:

west ham star lane
canning town prince regent
custom house royal victoria
emirates west silvertown
pontoon dock city airport
king george V woolwich ferry
gallions reach cyprus
beckton park royal albert
beckton east ham
upton park woodgange park
manor park wanstead park
forest gate maryland
stratford international stratford
puddingmill lane stratford high street
abbey road plaistow
