Oh come on! Go an hour or two without a drink! Read an interesting book instead. Or, check the good people at the AA. 😏
Cold, think train travel, like any public transport, should be avoided if at all possible at the moment with Covid levels already on the rise barely out of lockdown, not worth saving a bit to risk Covid, stay home, stay safe peeps...

Why would anyone want to travel to Grantham? LNER would have to pay me to transport me there.

Yeah we need all the economic stimulus we can get for all the extra crematoria they are going to have to build.........

Nor formulating a coherent argument on a shopping forum, it would seem.
Trains are running at 50% capacity so should be room for social distancing:

I booked two tickets for my son and I to Yorkshire from London for £10 each.
The seats were not next to each other but on separate rows and columns.
I then followed up to customer service, it's because they're spacing seats out.

As for need for booze.. .why not watch some downloaded Netflix shows?
Is that Leslie?

Of course you won't be sitting next to anyone else who isn't in your party. Train travel is massively down - and nearly all office people are working from home.

Heck, even before COVID unless you were travelling peak time to the Fringe it was easy to find two seats to yourself on a train to Edinburgh.

Safety and health should always come first IMHO. What good are all our earnings and possessions if covid gets us anyway?

Sick of hearing about the effect to the economy tbh, economic damage is bad of course but preserving life should always trump it, some things should stand above the accumulation of ever more wealth IMHO...
Have they put that new statue of Maggie Thatcher up in Grantham yet (where she was raised). ?

I might pay visit to show my "respects"
Great Deal though, any other similar deal with other train companies ?

Then you are not looking hard enough - first date searched 25th august - plenty of evening trains or early morning trains to Edinburgh . 27th august several daytime trains back to London - at £20 each way.
The most popular dates and times will have sold- but there is still plenty available if you are flexible.

Other LNER journeys are discounted too -e.g London to Newark is £7

Good deal; I used it to have a nice day out in Lincolnshire earlier this week for a fiver each way. Whwn you book with LNER at the monute you get an allocated seat that ensures you're socially distanced from other passengers; not that this is an issue now the coronavirus has all but died out.

I've just looked. There are plenty of tickets from Edinburgh to London and back. You might have to travel at inconvenient times, but the tickets are available.

OK Thanks .. I found some first Class out and Cattle Class return. I assume the first class does not have alcohol included now due to the Covid?

Please can you give some evidence for that last bit? I'd really like that to be true more than anyone, but every other source I see seems to point to the opposite being true and that we are going to be stuck with it for years now because it's so endemic....

Then having a drink shouldn't be an issue then. I don't think people are planning a Magaluf style session.

50% capacity does that mean everyone will at least get a seat now?

Ha yes! In all seriousness... They say no travelling without seat reservation which was good but still somewhat concerning. Then when I booked tickets and I couldn't sit next to my son it appears it is even better than that!

You’re fine doing that, nobody will stop you even if it’s against the rules (unless of course you take it too far) They don’t even appear to be checking tickets - staff on board are nowhere to be seen on the trains I’ve been on. You’re given a window seat and asked not to move around the train unless necessary. It’s a nice way to travel right now!
Was thinking of going to Edinburgh, but 5 hours wearing a face mask isn't much fun.

York may be doable, I was there for the first time last year, really liked it, and the excellent Railway Museum is 2/3rds open now.
