    I am a Club 50 Member and have looked at the terms and conditions. It says it is valid on Trans Pennine Express Services to Lockerbie in addition to Scotrail Services within Scotland.

    I couldn't swear to it, but I'm sure in years gone by it was valid to Carlisle and Berwick upon Tweed in addition to Scottish destinations.

    Yes you’re correct in as far as Carlisle, not sure about Berwick though.

    That was with the old Club 55 scheme when First had the Scotrail franchise.

    Cheers, and they had £1 tickets to anywhere in Scotland every now and then if I remember correctly.

    Well I'm on their website, and I can't find the offer. Can anyone point me in the right direction, please? Many thanks

    Same problem. I tried just after midnight and at 0700 and 0800. This is evidently a flash sale severely delayed by shortage of staff or a broken down train website.
    To give Northern their due, they haven't actually issued a timetable for the arrival of the Flash Sale. Just some time today.

    Can't see any link on the web page, and if you put in Flash Sale where it says Promotion, it just gives a Promotion not valid message! Very encouraging to the customer!

    It's not live yet. That's why it says "coming soon". When it's live, it will be on that page.

    I swear yesterday the website gave a time - I'm tempted to say 9/10am...

    EDIT: It's not live yet - just seen it confirmed on Twitter. They've also said they'll promote it when it is live..

    I've not seen them give a start time on Twitter. They keep saying "shortly", and refuse to say what exactly that means.

    At a time when they should be fanning the flames after their performances in recent months they are instead adding fuel to the fire

    They shouldn't be fanning the flames. That just makes the flames worse. You fan flames to add more oxygen to a fire, not to put it out.

    I have a special offer from EMR FOR £10 standard or £15 first class return to London to be used between 10th - 24th January. I have no reason to use it so want to see if anyone would like the code.

    nb there’s no indication of peak time restrictions on the email I’ve got.

    I’ll send it out on a first come first serve basis to anyone who DM’s me.
