No, their website was changed over 6 months ago. Even today they could not explain why certain London Midland trains were missing. Virgin shows them all. Eg Coventry to Euston at 7:42 on London Midland is missing.

Correct - no trains South of Hemel Hempstead over Easter weekend due to massive engineering works at Watford Junction etc etc

I presume that's why this Great Escape offer - which often coincides with school holidays - is AFTER Easter this year rather than straddling it.

More on the engineering works you're referring to over Good Friday 3rd thru Easter Bank Holiday Monday 6th:
http://www.londonmidland.com/your-journey/journey-planning/eustonline/

No doubt safest not to plan "a Great Escape" on Tuesday 7th unless you need to, or can be sure to check line status before 9:30 that morning...

The London Midland network is quite extensive: There are time restrictions on Weekdays ie "travel on any of our trains leaving after 0930, unless your journey is wholly within the pink shaded area on our [network] map, in which case you can travel at any time":
londonmidland.com/dow…15/

("In the evening, you’ll need to avoid our busiest time from London Euston; between 1700 and 1900.")

Do watch out that the London Midland GREAT ESCAPE ticket is ONLY valid on London MIdland's trains, many other Train Operating Companies also operate over their area and you don't want to be hit with a Penalty Fare on Virgin/CrossCountry/ArrivaTrainsWales/etc - and when you're planning trips on the online timetable sites they all too often include OTHER TOC TRAINS even if you specify 'via London Midland' TOC.

They offer reductions for Railcard holders - though not the regular 1/3rd off - eg weekday Adult £15 becomes £12
& Network Railcard holders get the discount even though their wanderings over the day may be outside the Network Railcard region [ie North of Long Buckby on the Euston/Northampton route up to Rugby & beyond] and aren't restricted to Railcard 10am'ish weekday start.

Still 9 days more of this offer to run and seems this year it hasn't been very popular as the online offer calendar still shows every day as 'green' ie vouchers available to claim, with not one 'orange' (going fast) or 'red' (gone).
(Mind you the queues at Milton Keynes on half-term Wednesday morning meant over 5 minutes wait to use the half-dozen ticket machines, let alone the far longer/slower queue for 4 counter clerks, ie was definitely better to plan ahead to catch a specific times London Midland train.)

Original Poster

It is indeed issued as a 'Day Ranger' ticket.

Bought one yesterday (in advance) at Virgin Trains ticket office at Birmingham International, ie a station on the London Midland network.

Initially the counter staff didn't like the idea of a £3 discount from £15 to £12 for Network Card holder (as their station is well outside the Netword Card area I guess) and the printed voucher just says £15 in big print, but supervisor soon processed it properly when I insisted and ticket has usual "NSE" (ie Network South-East from it's old name) discount marking on it.

The relevant offer T&Cs are
"14. Railcard holders are entitled to a further 20% discount off the Great Escape price. Normal railcard time restrictions and minimum fares do not apply with this offer. First Class discounts are not available with Network, Annual Gold Card or Family & Friends Railcards.
"15. Great Escape tickets purchased with a Network Railcard or Annual Gold Card discount can be used for travel anywhere on the London Midland network on our services. "

And I had no issue in getting a Plusbus (with Network Card discount) for Milton Keynes for that day too (even tho in theory the Day Ranger doesn't specify Milton Keynes as source/destination, ie it's just a possible calling point during the day's ranging over the London Midland network).

It's implied in OP's text but just to be clear: it's an ONLINE ONLY sale - you can't save the 15% buying at a ticket office [which I have liked to do to use up past Delay Repay vouchers], and indeed the extra 15% off Advance are ONLY shown if you get to London Midland's booking engine via the special red "book online here' link as via the OP's posting. You get a red asterisk & "*online discount" showing on offer tickets. (Remember the offer ONLY applies to London Midland train journeys on "London Midland Only" tickets for those saying it's not knocking it off all fares!)

And LM's "Railcard holders will get an extra third off." seems to be just a statement that normal Railcard discounts are still available on those Advance tickets (with extra-15% off). I mention that as sometimes London Midland's sales also allow Network Card holders (ie what was once South-East network) to get the saving on their sale tickets even 'out of area'!

Still it's already saved me all of 75p with £5.00 fare in Feb reduced 15% to £4.25, and owt's better than nowt - that's for a trip that the unable to plan ahead person might have been forced to pay £20.50 on the day at the station (and as much as £36.50 a totally unrestricted time/carrier ticket) - UK train prices!!!!.

For those unfamiliar with London Midlands routes [though they don't offer Advance tickets on all routes/shorter-journeys] - see
http://www.londonmidland.com/your-journey/journey-planning/our-route/
They get up to Liverpool/Crewe/Stoke/Stafford/Rugby/London as well as around West Midlands/Hereford/Shrewsbury/Stratford Upon Avon.

Though to wander the network it's best to wait in hope they do another of their 'ranger' style 'Great Escape' sales [often over school half-terms] when they have oiffered a ranger syle ticket valid across entire LM network for £10-£15.
eg last Feb's half term Great Escape...

Talk about short notice


Tip: subscribe to London Midland's promo emails.
Got email notice from them a few days ago advising of the ONE-DAY sales coming up, and unlike last offer they have let you know in advance what routes for most days so don't have to keep checking each day in the hope a local station/route comes up.

Talk about short notice

For those preferring the faster Virgin Trains services (c1h25m few stops versus 2h13m c10 stops ) that are normally a LOT LOT more, remember their Advances can be reasonably priced [tho tied 100% to a specific train/time/date]
eg looking a month ahead BHM-EUS and EUS-BHM from £7.50 mid-morning/late-evenings

and IF you are a Virgin Money customer you can get an extra 10% off those Adult Advances
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/10-off-virgin-trains-advance-tickets-adult-for-virgin-money-customers-31-12-14-1874320

What these London Midland tix do is give you flexibility over the time you go DOWN to London
ie any 'Off-peak', ie "departing from 0930hrs in the West Midlands (weekdays)". Can't see any restriction for Off-Peak going back to Birmingham
as well as a month's flexibility about when you return.
(A regular London Midland Off-Peak Return is £28 btw (ie their offer is half-price), it's their SUPER Off-Peak Return that's £23 with far more restrictions.)
London Midland ALSO offer Advance tickets - ie tied to specific train/time/date] from around £6!

Forgot to mention Birmingham New St - London Euston BHM-EUS is also a MegaBus/MegaTrain route and can be as low as £3+booking fee (are "Advance" specific train/date/time)
