There are a couple of tickets for Friday's bid to run from Glasgow to London in under 4hrs in both First Class and second Class ( late cancellations) if anyone wishes to join the train.....

They go on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis.

You must be able to get to Glasgow by 1145 Friday 22nd and as ticket is one way only make your own way home.

Sale will be by credit or debit card and due to shortage of time, tickets can be collected at Glasgow from Railway Magazine team. An email address will be required, for confirmation details.

If interested call Railway Magazine editorial office on 0207 261 5821.

Tickets are £99.99 each for First Class (including refreshements) and £59.99 for second class, and money goes to charity.
