I have a journey planned for a collaeague which involves doing Newcastle to Liverpool one day, Liverpool to Leeds the day after and Leeds to Newcastle the day after that.

I plan to purchase an Off Peak Return (with YP) for the colleague. East Coast states that Break of Journey applies. Can someone check that this is the case.

East Coast states the below
Break of journey: A break of journey is allowed on the outward portion unless otherwise indicated by a restriction shown against the ticket's Restriction Code and is allowed on the return portion of your ticket.

Are the railways the only industry that charges for access to its terms and conditions?

Use brfares.com to query the ticket database.

I assume the ticket is this one

You will therefore see that no restriction on break of journey applies.

In any instance, break of journey is always permitted on the return portion of Off-Peak Returns (SVRs) and on all types of Anytime ticket.

The railways do not charge for access to this information. :)
I wonder if we might be referring to different 'information' here?

There certainly is fares data (includng prices and conditions) which is made available to the public, but at a cost.
There are Terms and Conditions which prohibit the replication or disclosure of those Terms and Conditions.
There is data which would be helpful to many passengers in planning or monitoring their journey which is not available to them or those that they will meet, despite access to such data enabling passengers to avert many journey failures.

I expect that there are other industries whose lack of transparency is comparable. Three that come to mind are National Defence, the mechanics of the National Lottery, emergency response strategies.

But yes, your colleague may break their return journey with impunity.
