Yes, all the tokens needed will be published in all the publications listed over the coming week. You only need 2 tokens for 4 tickets!

Not a bad price for people wanting to put themselves through an endurance test. It will test you both physically and mentally. You have been warned.

Yes, you're right there but that's part of the fun. Best to pick a Saturday so that you can start early and also pick a day when the weather is good!

As an outsider (I've never travelled on them except from Piccadilly to Oxford Road and back a couple of months ago), am I right in thinking that Northern has a certain reputation as the worst TOC in terms of poor rolling stock, overcrowding, and vicious RPIs?

They do have some poor rolling stock, particularly the early 150's. Otherwise, they're not too bad. Overcrowding is no worse than any of the southern TOC's but no problem during the day and at Weekends. The RPI's are only viscous if you try to con them or Northern. Overall, Northern do not provide a bad service and their staff are mostly friendly and helpful

Love it!

OED: viscous - having a thick, sticky consistency between solid and liquid
A synonym would be "slimy".

I'm off tomorrow. So how would I get the vouchers? I'm just outside Edinburgh but could pop down on a TPE for next to nothing. Would two vouchers from different local papers on the same day work or does it have to be from different days?

These rovers would be ideal to get some mates travelling by train again.
