Distance information required!

I've had a look at the Quail diagram, and at
http://www.davros.org/rail/culg/district.html, and both *appear* to me
to have a discrepancy.

As I understand it, the "mileage" (what is the correct term for metric
units?)


Kilometerage?

The term 'chainage' is still used in many cases

But is it used by LU in this context?

under the Portuguese/Spanish/French languages (wich are latin, as is
english), that is precisely the used expression (taking the translation into
account of course (Quilometragem (port) = Kilometerage))...so in English it
will probably be correct
