Our mistake was thinking purely of railway stations, when you are heading to Ross on Wye!

You could do same train out but you would have had to take a photo of Redditch Station, Stage 4 coming up.

I'll leave it there as the rest gets very tricky, especially stage 8
4 Rugeley - Runcorn
5 Runcorn - Rochdale
6 Rochdale - Ramsbottom
7 Ramsbottom - Rawtenstall
8 Rawtenstall - Ripon
9 Ripon - Richmind
10 Richmond - Redcar
11 Redcar - Rotherham
12 Rotherham - Ripley
13 Ripley - Rugby
14 Rugby - Raunds
15 Raunds - Rushden
16 Rushden - Ramsey
17 Ramsey - Royston
18 Royston - Ruislip
19 Ruislip - Richmond upon Thames
20 Richmond - Romford
21 Romford - Rainham Essex
22 Rainham--Rochester
23 Rochester - Rainham Kent
24 Rainham - Ramsgate
25 Ramsgate - Redhill
26 Redhill - Reigate
27 Reigate - Romsey
28 Romsey - Ringwood
29 Ringwood - Ryde
You'd need a lottery win to do that journey.
