* A long distance journey is one of more than 50 miles. Excludes Eurostar.
** Made at least one long distance journeys in last 12 months, but used train for less than half of these trips.
*** Includes a number of respondents who said they have no need to make more long distance journeys, or that they don't use long distance trains. This is because the filter was based on a very approximate usage of long distance journeys and what share is made by train.
