Well for DGT to MCO it could be a double back. I know someone who worked near Deansgate station who walked to Occy Road as there would be no or little chance of boarding the train at rush hour.And yet an amazing number of people turn up with claiming to have made this very journey.
For MCO to MAN it's actually a straight walk down Whitworth street.I was thinking the same, especially if you don't know the route.
Admittedly these will be for services which even in normal times operate rather sparsely, but you'd still expect there always to be a fare quoted for the next stop up the line on a direct service, wouldn't you?I can imagine there's some really useless fares like Reddish South to Denton or Gainsborough Central to Kirton in Lindsay
I wouldn't say it's a totally improbable journey, especially if you have walked across the bridge from the tram stop at Castlefield-Deansgate. But you would have to be rather silly to claim not to have had a chance to buy a ticket as revenue staff seem to be permanently stationed at Deansgate.And yet an amazing number of people turn up with claiming to have made this very journey.
In a similar vein, Manchester Piccadilly - Manchester Oxford Road (£2.40 single).
Kyle of Lochalsh to Mallaig
£136 single, 11 HR+ journey with brilliant connections
Under 2hr drive if using the ferry, if not closer to 3
I can drive from Manchester to Mallaig quicker than the train from Kyle
Colne-Skipton is £38 single too with a journey time of 3 hours 10 minutes, the bus Pendle wizz, takes around 40 minutes not sure of the fare.Clitheroe to Skipton single is a mind boggling £38 Any Permitted or £23.20 via Burnley Manchester Road.
i wonder how much it is on the bus?
£852 via London.
I have a feeling I recall that one did top a grand but it was reduced a bit due to the adverse publicity it caused, given that that would cause no actual financial loss to the TOC because it's not a fare that would be likely to ever be sold.
Are fares available for any of these other than Bromley North - Bromley South? (Thread title refers).Tyndrum Lower- Upper Tyndrum
Helensburgh Central- Helensburgh Upper
Bromley North- Bromley South
Blackpool North- Blackpool South
How many of these are realistic ?
