You can get the same day's paper twice. The tokens are the same - and they'll probably be the same the next time they have this offer, so if you have any spare it's worth saving them.

None of the newspapers in the offer are sold anywhere near me, but when I was in Newcastle yesterday I bought six copies of the Chronicle to use the tokens for this offer.

Depends what you mean by scenic, and also where you're starting from. Northern's trains are slow so there are journeys where you might not be able to get there and back within a day.

The line from Leeds to Carlisle is considered to be the most scenic in England. If you do that I'd recommend then going from Carlisle round the Cumbrian coast for some good sea views.

A good scenic route would be:
Get the 08:49 from Leeds to Carlisle, arriving at 11:32. Then the 12:08 to Barrow, arriving 14:36. The 14:41 from Barrow to Carnforth, arriving 15:25. Then take a short walk to Booths supermarket for something to eat in their cafe. Take your Booths card to get a free hot drink. Then get the 16:32 to Leeds, arriving at 18:15.

Why should i have to understand the woes of the train operator?
I pay for a service which they are supposed to provide, the fact that they seem incapable or unwilling to do isnt my problem.......why should i put up with a 2nd rate service?

1) The route that I use on a daily basis is served only by the 25+ year old pacer style trains, they are slow, uncomfortable and poor quality.
2) They are always overcrowded, if im lucky i can get a seat maybe once a fortnight.. Often its only a 2 carriage train and people are left waiting at the station for the next train (30+ mins)... Its virtually impossible to get on the 8.14 train and as a result ive been forced to change my work hours and catch the 9.13am.
3) Trying to buy a ticket is becoming nigh on impossible!!
The ticket machine at the station is out of order 80% of the time (has been reported many times),
The ticket contractors handheld machine fails pretty much everyday, whether its battery or signal issues its always something (plus he knocks off at 8.40)
The train is often so overcrowded the conductor is unable to provide tickets to anyone as he cant leave his cab!
The mobile app is great...., i can purchase tickets at will... but they cant be scanned by the ticket gates in Leeds (yet!) so you have to find a friendly cs rep to let you through...maybe.
Last resort is to venture to the ticket office in Leeds station on arrival, where there is always a very, very long queue and if you are unfortunate enough to be 1 of the 50 or so they seem to pick out at random for a hefty fine for travelling without a ticket!
I tried a weekly/monthly pass but until recently they had to be renewed at the station because the conductor doesnt venture down the train and it couldnt be done online.
4) I can count the number of times the train has been 'on time' on one hand.

This is why people either avoid using public transport or are fed up with the high costs and poor quality of service

While there's potential in what littld is saying I think it's still a deal.

I went from Blackburn to York on £20 return earlier this year and had a lovely day there. To do that trip on £10 is pretty dam good!

I wonder why there's a form to fill in though.

This is very expensive considering they will cancel all of the services on these dates.

You might be able to get a replacement bus service between one station and another. The train home will be lacking a driver so you can't get on.

Sounds horrible.

Well all of my other colleagues paid full price for a ticket this morning (including me from Bolton), in fact all this week. However Buckshaw Village Station are still not charging full price, so that's an anomaly. It was advised to me that these are Bank Holiday prices rather than off peak prices, but maybe he has the wrong end of the stick - you don't ask you don't get and it's worth a punt if you live there, surely?
Edited by: "aires" 30th Dec 2011

Bank Holiday prices are normal off peak prices - this would only have been any use before 09:30 today, hence expired.

And even if the machine had sold off peak prices at peak time you'd still end up paying the extra if caught by a conductor or revenue staff....

Seems they are the same all over then. I use the Morpeth->Newcastle train most days and although they don't get overcrowded they are really old, filthy trains. They look like some out of commission trains from the 70's most of the time.
You can guarantee that there will be at least 1 cancellation per week on the homebound train (always the same train 17:50 one) but they never tell you about it. You only find out when the thing doesn't arrive so you have to wait an extra 40 minutes on the next one. Never any apologies either.

And why is that?


Cos s/he's a southerner so northern is pointless for em. Heat from me as you can just get it for a decent day trip somewhere.
