I'm not sure this is always true; depends on where you start from, and
whether you're trying to go cross-country or not.

I'd agree with you here -- what's wrong with Oxford and York as suitable
places to meet?

I used to live west of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye (one-and-a-half hours
from Kyle; eight hours from Glasgow; eighteen hours from London).
It always amazed me how the pillocks in London used to say: Just jump on a
train and come down, will you? -- with absolutely NO concept at all of
what that involved.  (E.g. night sleeper ticket costs of £152 per person;
at a time when you could fly to New York for £99.)
I'm sure this attitude still obtains.
