    Excellent news. Thanks for the tip off. I always look forward to this offer as it's the only time I can afford rail travel.

    I've got half a dozen 10p Northern tickets booked too so I'm a happy bunny!

    I see only tokens available in MEN paid for papers, not the free ones. On the list is The Sunday Sun , first for a national paper, presume only northern editions ?

    The Sunday Sun isn't The Sun on Sunday. It's a local paper in the NE (sister of Newcastle Chronicle/Journal).

    So when it says a staffed station on the Northern network does it have to be Northern managed?

    I've certainly got them at stations staffed by other TOCs.

    I have also previously got the £10 rovers from Lancaster, Preston, and Sheffield stations with no problems.

    Thanks, I'd naturally start in Nottingham if possible and take the Northern service to Sheffield/Leeds from there

    I assume all the ticket seller has to do , in theory, is to log in to the data base which lists all tickets available.Then veryify the tokens are correct and sell the ticket. Maybe some do not know what to do with the form and tokens that you submit?

    When I've bought them from Carlisle ticket office they've had a sheet of paper with instructions on. No problem buying from there, even though the local papers don't have the tokens, so they won't sell many.

    Have you tried the Westmorland Gazette, that usually has them and at the W H Smiths at Carlisle Railway Station

    The Westmorland Gazette is published by Newsquest, and I think the last time they did the Northern offer was in 2016. It's now in papers published by Reach and JPI.

    Earlier in the year I saw the Newcastle Chronicle in a couple of Carlisle supermarkets, but they appear to have stopped selling it before the last Northern offer and I haven't seen one since.

    I have a 20p return trip to Newcastle booked for next week, so I'll be able to buy some papers. It's a shame they now change the tokens each time, I still have some MEN tokens from the last offer.

    Northern are running their offer for unlimited rail travel again if you get 3 tokens from qualifying papers.
    Its £10 for a weekday ticket/ £17.50 for a weekend and you can get up to 4 tickets per proof of purchase and all tickets to be used on the same day.

    Interesting choice of papers. They appear to be excluding the big cities from the offer. No Liverpool or Manchester in there.

    The offer is with two newspaper publishers, but only one has been linked to in the previous post. The Manchester Evening News is one of the papers doing the offer. There's discussion on this offer, and a link to the other papers, in the special offers thread.

    Which press release?

    The last time they ran this offer wasn't last year, this is the third time they've done it this year.

    Hmm, looks like the tokens are smaller and completely redesigned from the previous ones. Pity really; I have six leftover tokens from the summer offer. I wonder if there's anything to stop me using them?

    In my experience booking office staff aren't that observant, particularly at busy times!
