Interesting Fact # 1185 - Train Travel

The UK just got its first £1000 rail fare – for a return journey between Newquay to Kyle of Lochalsh.

(In fact the UK has the most expensive fares in Europe. According to the Liberal party, a £10 fare in the UK will take rail travellers 26 miles, compared to 512 miles for the same money in Serbia. But I bet they don't serve sandwiches with the corners curled up in Serbia.)
