You know how I'm always saying how handy it would be to have journey planner for the entire country?

Apparently we do.

Dude. Like dude. Timely post! Totally shiny useful goodness!
Well, at least it gives me a starting place on how on earth to get to and between random little villages in the west on public transport. Damn drivers with jobs *mumblemumble*
Wow, that is tres useful. Now to be organised and remember to add it to my favourites when I get home, otherwise I shall be forever scrolling back through your journal to find this post!
Ooh, it's working again - last few times I've tried to access this it's been offline. (But, yes, you got me, the thought of adding it to memories hadn't occurred to me. Some days I'm smarter than others, this is one of those other days!).
Just be aware that while this is useful, Which? slammed it as being not very clever and creating journeys of monstrous lengths. I have the report in paper form but can't link to it because their site is members only.

I'd run a sanity check on of everything you get out of it.

It doesn't exactly cover the whole country - only larger towns. It doesn't know about the Scottish island we go to every year, for instance, nor even the ferry terminal that serves it. Being able to compare train and plane journeys easily is useful, but when I asked it for recommendations for London to Glasgow (on the basis that I know how long it takes to get to the island from there, and train+ferry is really the only option anyway), it recommended flying on the outward journey and getting the train back, which is insane from a financial point of view. I've bookmarked it, though, and will probably use it, so thanks!
It seems to be somewhat under development still, I just didn't know it even existed. The route it gave me from Soho to Cranleigh is spot on, however.
