The longest train journey in the UK

What’s the longest train journey that you can do in the UK?  According to the Daily Telegraph it’s Aberdeen to Penzance in 13 and a half hours.

All you USA and Canada readers will laugh at this.  That’s just down the road to the corner shop when you are talking transcontinental at the speed of a North American passenger train.

This article describes the route and it sounds a lot more interesting than I suspect it really is.  I’ve plotted it on the map below.  I hope they didn’t leave the car in the station car park in Aberdeen.
