N.b. the Europeans mostly have 1 car per family, taking it away for a week long trip from the household will have consequences. Different circumstances from what's discussed above, but exactly my point.

kind of makes sense based on the 2.5 hr train journey from city centre to city centre which would be quicker in essence. it doesn't effect many routes. However one problem is railways can be an expensive monopoly

"Isn't this just one service a day? Vasty majority over 2hr 50min, many over 3hrs."

yeah but its over 3 hours if you fly - an hour to get to LHR, and hour in the airport and hour in flight and an hour to get out and home

and there is no security hassle, no long lines and your luggage travels with you

It's all going to depend upon where you are starting from and where you want to be.
eg. if you have easy access to Kings Cross and want to be in the centre of Newcastle then I would think the train would be quickest, however, if you are say, near Reading or Basingstoke then Flying may well be best,

near Reading or Basingstoke

its a 45 minute drive minimum to LHR from either - worse in rush hour. - its only an hour to Kings Cross - or you take a Cross country from either location.
