Man visits all metro stations in 16 hrs for Guinness record

UPI – An employee of India’s Delhi Metro Rail Corp put his knowledge of the city’s commuter trains to the test by breaking a Guinness World Record for the fastest time to visit all stations in the national capital.

The DMRC announced in a Twitter post  that employee Prafull Singh earned the record by riding the city’s rail system to all 254 stations in 16 hours and two minutes. The tweet said Singh’s journey encompassed about 216 miles.

Singh told Guinness World Records he regularly rides the Metro trains and developed a plan to visit every station in the city with the fastest possible route.

“I have been using Delhi Metro for a long time so I am very much aware about the all lines,” he said. “My planning was from which station and line should I have to start and end so I can complete my record before time.”

Singh said earning the Guinness World Record felt like winning an Olympic medal.
