I love it too! Thanks so much for posting it. Fascinating. No, not just you, maybe one needs to be a map freak, as I assume we both are.

There are lots of similar sites to this covering all the main UK stations and others for aircraft and shipping movements.

DFRob, THANK YOU!!! (shouting on purpose . This will be a much-appreciated addition to the Routesy app I use (which is much more accurate than those stupid-GPS signs at the streetcar stops).

Almost no dots .. oh, yeah, London is hours ahead of us, so I'll have to look tomorrow

I like how the map is geographically drawn instead of geometrically inspired. Overlaying on an actual map allows seeing the London locations with more perspective, I think.

Thank you for the link, DFRob.
