I hope someone here might be able to help me, as I've been given different information by station and train staff. I usually travel Castleford to Sheffield return, on the hourly local Northern service. My ticket is an anytime day return that says any permitted route. Occasionally I want to travel back via Leeds, for example if I've just missed the hourly Castleford service. I was told by Sheffield ticket office staff that Sheffield to Castleford via Leeds is not a permitted route. This morning I asked to buy a single Castleford - Leeds and a return Leeds - Sheffield and was told I could just use a Castleford - Sheffield return as it said any permitted route. So who is right? If it makes any difference, the Cas - Sheffield ticket opened the gates at Leeds. Just to add complication I'm fairly sure that Woodlesford - Sheffield via Leeds is permitted, presumably because it is a shorter journey. Thanks for any help!
