Men say they've set record for traversing Boston's subway

REVERE, Mass. — Two Boston-area residents say they've set the world record for travelling to every stop on the city's subway system in about 7½ hours.

The Boston Globe reports Dominic DiLuzio and Alex Cox accomplished the feat on Friday in 7 hours, 29 minutes and 46 seconds. The men hope to get official recognition from Guinness World Records and are submitting photos, videos and other evidence.

DiLuzio says he came up with the plan and enlisted Cox, a Massachusetts Department of Transportation employee.

They started their journey around 5:30 a.m. at Cambridge's Alewife Station, which is the end of the Red Line. They ended at about 1 p.m. at Revere's Wonderland stop, at the end of the Blue Line. They were greeted there by friends, media and transit officials.
