Review of 2020 : Another year of rail travel

In 2019 i began to maintain a spreadsheet of the trains and operating companies i had travelled on throughout the year. Last year (2020) i managed to travel on one hundred and ninety trains which was pretty good going all considering (the total was two hundred and forty in 2019). These figures were for network mainline trains only so not including preserved railways or the London Underground (though moot in the case of 2020 as i travelled on neither!)

So, here we are the graphs for traction and train operating companies in 2020, it can be compared with the graphs for 2019. West Midlands Railway and the Class 323 dominated, though as that is the train and company which operates from my local station Chester Road it is hardly surprising!
