"The major cities of England's North Country, Manchester and Liverpool, are each about two hours from London by train."

Don't these people look at maps?

I think that claim would be challenged by a few people in Leeds, York, Halifax, Darlington, Hartlepool, Preston, Sunderland, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sheffield, Carlisle ...

If you want the non-glossy-brochure version, ask any of the 'iblers that actually live and work there.

Maybe they need to catch the train, first hand experience!

Cheaper to fly. Or hire a car.

Heck, it's cheaper to buy a car, then scrap the car, than it is to go by train.

(Seriously - return tickets for my whole family, from my home town to central London, bought on the day, cost at least three times more than my car is worth).

Just for fun, I looked up my car on ebay - just as i was looking, one the same age, with less mileage, went for only £60...

On the bright side, it's insured for £1000.
How much is that? Like 60 bucks?
$120 -it's almost pocket money for a lot of kids.... xD
You can get a europeancar for 120 bucks??

I gotta get one of those...
You'll get killed by the insurance - I pay over 200GBP a year, and I've been driving over twenty years. New drivers, or drivers with no UK history, can end up paying thousands every year.
