This couple visited over 2,000 UK train stations over a 3 month period!

 

This is a look back over their adventures, but they have lots of shorter you tube vidoes covering individual days of travel on their youtube channel, "All the stations".

Maybe they hopped off onto the platform and back on. That way they can say that they went to all those stations without losing any time.

They did not get off the train at every stop, but they only counted the stations if the train stopped there, rather than passing through.

 

The achievement is that they did visit every single station possible!

So really they basically just took ever route over a three month period.

Love it! I'd love to finish my own little 'project' in the States by visiting all the stations. But for someone not living there I'm afraid it will forever be a dream. So far I've managed 448 stations, of the approx. 520.


Amtrak Routes Traveled: Lake Shore Limited, California Zephyr, San Joaquin, Pacific Surfliner, Coast Starlight, Empire Builder, Cardinal, Crescent, Sunset Limited, Southwest Chief, Hiawatha, City of New Orleans, Texas Eagle, Heartland Flyer, Missouri River Runner, Lincoln, Wolverine, Northeast Regional, Acela Express, Downeaster, Vermonter, Silver Star, Silver Meteor, Capitol Limited, Pennsylvanian, Amtrak Cascades, Maple Leaf, Adirondack, Ethan Allen Express, Keystone, Carolinian, Piedmont.
Other Routes in North America: Denali Star (Anchorage-Fairbanks, Alaska Railroad), The Ocean (Halifax-Montréal), Corridor (Montréal-Toronto), The Canadian (Toronto-Vancouver).
Amtrak: approx. 29,000 miles and 47 states; VIA Rail Canada: approx. 4,300 miles and eight provinces.

Yes, basically they rode trains that stopped at all the possible stations, but did not alight at each station, only the ones where they made connections, etc.

 

You can add your word "just" to the above if you wish to.

 

I will have to count up my Amtrak stations visited now... :D
