London Midland "Great Escape" tickets this half-term
« on: January 27, 2012, 05:48:11 PM »
Would be better if they'd either post paper timetables, or offer a set for sale, rather than pulping them afterwards in the name of the enviroment...

The Great Escape is back!

Between Saturday 4 - Sunday 19 February 2012 you can take off for the day for just £15 (£5 for children) with our Great Escape ticket - or go first class for just £10 more. Railcard holders get an even better deal at just £9.90.

You can visit as many or as few places as you like - the ticket gives you unlimited off-peak travel all day across our network on our trains.

When can you travel?

Travel anytime at weekends or after 0930 on weekdays, although there are no time restrictions within the Network West Midlands area or for southbound journeys between Liverpool and Crewe on any day.

If you're travelling to London from stations north of Rugby, you can also use the 0833 Crewe-Euston train.

Northbound travel is allowed on the 0904 Rugby-Crewe, 0917 Nuneaton-Crewe and 0923 Atherstone-Crewe services.

This is a great value offer, Sally and I took advantage of it a couple of years ago and it was a real bargain.

Interesting to see that it mentions Railcards, and part of the site implies that you can use the Network Railcard for this ticket, meaning that you can actually (for the duration of this promotion) actually get as far as Liverpool using a Network Card!
