Hi all, I am beginning to plan a short trip in July or August with my father, mainly focussing on doing the West Highland Line. We'd be starting from somewhere in Derbyshire (probably Derby or Buxton), and I'm thinking we could get some other "nice" lines in, for example the Settle-Carlise, or Sheffield-Manchester via Hope etc. Another thing I'm considering is doing the sleeper between Crewe and Fort William in one of the directions, for instance spending day 1 travelling up, spending a day or two around the area, then getting the sleeper back on the final night. If anyone has any suggestions of lines to do, things to do, or splits to save money etc, they would be much appreciated. I have a 16-25 railcard and my father is eligible for a senior railcard. Particularly for the local legs, I'm mainly looking at open tickets rather than advances, to give maximum flexibility. From looking at the routeing guide, I believe that both BUX-MLG (via Carlisle) and DBY-MLG (any permitted) SVRs are valid via Settle, however NRE wants me to buy more than one ticket with its suggested itinerary. I guess I'll try and figure my own route out to fit in with valid routes on those tickets. Thanks.
