    Delay Repay. Is this a record payout?

    It was a 10p single from Barrow to Bolton. It was delayed 30+ mins at Preston but sadly only 29 at Bolton. As my watch isn't too reliable I claimed for a 30 min delay with "Free Ticket", missed out on that.

    Trivia: which railway station is furthest from the town it serves?

    Well, if we have Closed Stations, how about Proposed new stations? I include the new prospective "Leigh (Lancs) Station" which will be at least 4.5 miles away in Golbourne.
