    As the title suggests, what is the highest mileage anyone has achieved in a day on trains?
    The one that springs to mind for me is 762mi42ch, on a North East Rover.

    7th April 1997 I have 930 miles in my log; I can't remember where I went without digging up my notebooks but I was doing an all line rover that week, all long day trips starting and finishing at Epsom.

    I have quite a few days over 800 miles in my log over the years.

    I think I've done 500 miles in one day for the RailUK Strathclyde Challenge - Manchester Victoria to Glasgow and back (223 miles each way), plus at least 50 miles on the Challenge itself.

    Not a single day, but I have a twenty-four hour period, starting in the early hours of the 22nd of August 1991, when I had over a thousand miles.

    I've managed a +1400 mile day before involving an early Eurostar and a late finish.

    Mines probably London - Munich or Vienna - Zurich - Innsbruck - Selzthal - Leoben - Vienna.
    How are we counting 'a day' if it's within a 24 hour period then I'd count Budapest - Vienna in the top list as well.

    Over a 24 hour period, probably about 1350 miles, on the Southwest Chief in the US (on one train).

    That was part of a coast-to-coast LA to Washington DC trip involving two trains back-to-back (changing at Chicago), so about 3000 miles in total spread over 2.5 to 3 days, all in coach class...
