Sometimes It All Works

As a prequel to my posts on my trip to Scotland last week, I thought you might be interested in my entire itinary for the 4 days. It's an example of when public transport works it's pretty darn good. I haven't included any spontaneous journeys in Edinburgh, or cross London but just about everything else from when I left till when I got home, including punctuality and type of vehicle.

I would love to know the total mileage covered over the 4 days - any takers? But I think you will agree that is a pretty impressive record, and is it any surprise the only delays were on GA? I don't really blame GA as the huge majority of their probs are caused by circumstances beyond their control, as is backed up by tody's huge fine for Network Rail.
