An excercise was carried out on access times by rail and road links to mainline railway terminals in North-west England. The average rail journey time to London was calculated by two methods. Firstly, it was assumed that all trips were made via a single centre, and secondly, the region was divided into 4 or 8 zones, each with its own railhead. The conclusion was that using a single centre over-estimates the journey time, but the average time with a small number of centres tends to agree with the average times to the railheads. /Author/TRRL/
