Freedom Pass circuit

This circuit links all the outermost stations that can be reached using the Freedom Pass. The total distance is 238 miles. There are 41 sections. The average distance is 5.8 miles, with a standard deviation of 3.6 miles.

This circuit was originally created before the Elizabeth Line was opened. At that time, the westernmost station reachable by the Freedom Pass on the Great Western line was West Drayton. With the opening of the Elizabeth Line, it is now possible to travel all the way to Reading. However, Reading is much too far away to reach from the outermost points on either of the adjacent lines, Heathrow Terminal 5 and Uxbridge, in a single day. Therefore I have retained West Drayton as the calling point on the Great Western line, but in addition have provided in an appendix an itinerary from West Drayton to Reading. It is divided into five stages.
