Introduction

The 2013 UK Transport Tycoon Forums meet is planned to take place in London on the 28th July (a Sunday this year, rather than the Saturdays of old). We will initially be congregating at a Wetherspoons pub, The Moon Under Water, at Leicester Square for drinks and lunch. Plans for the rest of the day are still to be finalised. See below for further details on the venue, activities, and getting around London.

As with previous years, we will not be able to accept responsibility for under-18s at the meet, so we respectfully ask that you do not attend if you are under 18 unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. As our initial venue is a public house, please be aware that entrance or service may be refused to under-18s. If this happens, I'm afraid we can't do anything to help you out.

Attendance

I'm coming!

Post your name/nick here if you're coming.

Cannot attend

If you previously thought you were going to be able to attend, but now can't, post your name/nick here

Travelling

Let us know how and when you're getting to the meet. This way, we will be able to know when people are arriving, and can let people know if they're likely to be travelling together or meeting each other at a station. Please try to keep all entries in time order!

There

  • orudge - Flying from Aberdeen, Tube to Leicester Square - should be arriving at the pub around 11:00 - 11:30
  • 47407 Train from Croydon. Should be there nice and early.
  • Geo Ghost Train from St. Evenage down to London. Easy.
  • Chris Most likely will be at parents' house, so the Met from Amersham.
  • JamieLei - train from Birmingham in the morning.
  • Welshdragon - Train from Oxford, or a coach.
  • SkeedR - Current idea/plan: Driving from Brentwood to St Albans, train to Kings Cross, tube to Leicester Square.

  • TomS - Tube to Ealing
  • M3henry (talk) 09:56, 19 July 2013 (UTC) - Tube to Epping, bike back to Cambridge. (£15 for the whole journey really can't be beaten)

Travel around London

Travelcards are the best way to go around London at £8.90 (Absolutely sodding extortionate! Only yesterday it was £7.50!), and allows unlimited rides on Tubey-thingys, big red double deck boxes and huge long rail-riding thingys around this massive expanse of office blocks. Or basically anywhere on -> [1] <- this map. Added by 47 407 (talk) 20:58, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Overnight in London

The following people will/may be staying in or near London over the weekend:

  • orudge - Staying the night in London (probably at a Travelodge near Heathrow Airport - £21 can't be knocked!)

Activities

Socialising!

The main focus of the meet is to get to know each other, enjoy a few pints, eat burgers, and have a laugh! While you're welcome to bring your laptop to play a game of OpenTTD or similar, you'll probably find that most people won't have gone to the trouble of doing so.

Other activities

Still to be finalised. If you have any suggestions, please post them!
