    From what I can see the official price is £133.00, meaning they have inserted the decimal point one place too early. A simple error on their part.

    Other journeys are showing the correct value of £133.00 though.

    The site doesn't sell tickets - it's designed to be an accessible version of NRE - and it performs that role very well, working properly with screen readers such as JAWS and SuperNova.

    Edit: With the exception of Haymarket to Tring :)

    It seems to show that price for that particular itinerary for all the days into some near future. Shame it doesn't sell tickets. :p

    According to NRE the lowest Anytime fare is £159.30.

    There is a £133.90 Off Peak fare, so they seem to have mangled that one quite badly.

    Im sure the OP has already noticed but there is a £51.50 advance available on the 12:19 departure.
