Adham Fisher

Our friend Adham visits rapid transit systems around the world with the aim of visiting all stations on the system in the shortest possible time. These webpages are about his adventures on each system.

Wherever he goes, he generates lots of local interest. Photographs from some of his trips are below but better, read the original articles and access other links from the left sidebar.

All Adham's attempts are meticulously documented to conform to the Guiness Book of Records standard. He has what he regards as an essential kit for a tube/subway/metro record attempt. His high visibility on the systems make him a great advertisement for these products.

Adham on the Nottingham Tram Network could Melbourne be next?

Adham is looking for sponsorship to help him make a trip down under to take on the Yarra Trams 1700 stop network in Melbourne.

One of the operators of the Melbourne tram system is the Keolis group who also run the Nottingham network. ABOVE: Adham setting the official record on Nottingham's NET tram system.
