National Rail into Google Maps in the UK

In an earlier post on web transit maps in London I noted that when you used the public transport route calculator on Google Maps it didn't include national rail.  That wasn't too much of a problem itself (it's obvious they were working on whatever licensing/data issues were holding up getting that data in) but my criticism was that the map didn't make that clear.

The discussion has now become academic as I learn via Ed Parsons that national rail trains are now included in their route planner.  Good work Google!
