I've recently tried to buy these tickets and notice that only 2 routes are available, Via Penistone and Via Leeds. I understand these tickets were altered from route Any permitted sometime last year to close a loophole where they were valid via Leeds but cheaper than the Leeds-Sheffield/Chesterfield fare. The problem now is that there is no ticket for going via Wakefield (i.e. Not Leeds) which from Deighton is certainly the quickest way of doing this journey, and probably from Huddersfield if you've missed the Penistone line stopper but made it for the xx31 Wakefield shuttle. No ticket site can now actually sell a valid through ticket for this journey, with NRE splitting the ticket at Wakefield and webtis sites saying no tickets for the journey. This seems like a bit of an unexpected side effect (to anyone except those who actually have to do this journey), but who can fix it? Is this an issue for Northern to sort?
