Hi,

What routes are valid on the return portion of an Off Peak return marked 'Any Permitted'?

I ask because I may come back via Leeds or Sheffield. I presume Manchester>Euston>King's Cross>Stevenage is valid.

Also, can I go to York, then Stevenage?

Also, I know there is an easement allowing Selby > London via York. does this mean I can go Manchester>Selby>York>Stevenage?

Thanks in advance,

Lee

All the routes between Manchester and Stevenage.

Valid Routes from Manchester Piccadilly [MAN] to Stevenage [SVG]:
  1. Direct trains from Manchester Piccadilly to Stevenage
  2. Shortest Route: 168.75 miles
  3. Mapped Routes (subject to fares check):
    LONDON GROUP - Stevenage:
    MANCHESTER GROUP - LONDON GROUP:
    MANCHESTER GROUP - Stevenage:

To answer your specific questions :

Manchester - Euston - Kings Cross - Stevenage is valid.
Manchester - Huddersfield Or Halifax - Leeds - Stevenage is valid

As for going via York I am not sure whether you can or not. I've had a quick skim through the maps and couldn't see it, and I'm not 100% on the easements.

Manchester - Stevenage is valid via maps :
LONDON GM+MA+BP+ER GM+WY+ER LY+WK+EE LY+WK+ER MA+BP+ER
MS+MM+BP+ER MS+SH+ER NL+ER PS+ER TP+WK+EE TP+WK+ER

Manchester - Stevenage via York would be valid using the combination :

TP + WK + ER

TP : Manchester - Huddersfield
WK : Huddersfield - Wakefield - Pontrefact - Goole - Gilberdyke
ER : Gilberdyke - Selby - York - Peterborough - Stevenage

Manchester - Stevenage via Selby, York would be valid using this map combination :

GM + WY + ER

GM : Manchester - Stalybridge - Huddersfield
WY : Huddersfield - Leeds - Selby
ER : Selby - York - Doncaster - Peterborough - Stevenage

Normally the EMT to Manchester takes about an hour longer than using EC to Doncaster and TPE to Manchester.
Example journey times if using leaving after 1600 today :

1620 dep Manchester Piccadilly - Doncaster arr 1735 dep 1745 arr Stevenage 1907

1643 dep Manchester Piccadilly - Peterborough arr 1938 dep 1950 arr Stevenage 2020

So i'd agree it was quicker via Doncaster
