What’s the longest train journey that you can do in the UK? According to the Daily Telegraph it’s Aberdeen to Penzance in 13 and a half hours.
All you USA and Canada readers will laugh at this. That’s just down the road to the corner shop when you are talking transcontinental at the speed of a North American passenger train.
This article describes the route and it sounds a lot more interesting than I suspect it really is. I’ve plotted it on the map below. I hope they didn’t leave the car in the station car park in Aberdeen.
