Ive just seen this posted on wnxx.com
http://wnxx.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=132Just read that GNER have pulled out of both the North Country and Freedom of the North East rail rovers and both tickets will not be valid on GNER services from 2nd January. Over on the West Coast, the Coast & Peaks and Freedom of the North West flexirovers change from three in seven to four in eight days for £50 instead of £44.
No doubt this decision by GNER has been caused by the delayed shock and realisation of just how much money it has promised to pay the government over the term of the current franchise. Whatever next, Aldi pork sausages in the restaurant car ?
