This seems to be the year everyone is going to Britain, and consider that I
have access to "the fount of knowledge"!
Last night I was discussing train travel with someone who is trying to get
from Oxford to Ayr. They have been given a route that takes them through
Birmingham and Carlisle, with changes at those stations.
Another way would be for them to go would be Oxford-London-Glasgow-Ayr, but
this would entail crossing cities in a taxi.
This couple is on the tour with the New Hampshire Strathspey & Reel Society
Music Tour of Scotland, so they will be burdened with instruments, etc. Can
any one who may know more about train travel than I, please advise.
