2012 - A summary of my train travels

Summary figures for train travel for 2012 are:
  • January: 2,229mi 52ch
  • February: 3,264mi 70ch
  • March: 3,167mi 47ch
  • April: 4,204mi 58ch
  • May: 3,693mi 50ch
  • June: 1,698mi 00ch
  • July: 3,911mi 14ch
  • August: 4,377mi 43ch
  • September: 3,951mi 5ch
  • October: 4,597mi 50ch
  • November: 5,045mi 24ch
  • December: 3,765mi 5ch
This means that in 2012 I have travelled 43,906 miles 18 chains by rail, not including the London Underground.

During the year I have spent 33 days and 3 minutes on trains and have been delayed by 2 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes.

The worst delay of the year was on 11th August, while I was on my way to see a brilliant night of athletics in the Olympic Stadium. I was not the only person on the train getting slightly nervous as the delay wore on. It was not the fault of Chiltern Railways, but it was nonetheless frustrating.

I suspect that 2013 will see me travelling fewer miles by rail than happened this year. This is primarily because am am currently not travelling quite so much for work. Only time will tell.

All stats have been collected and collated using Railmiles, written by Tom Cairns.Thanks Tom!

Have a very Happy New Year and all the very best for 2013.
