    Hi,
    I'm off to Grimsby Town next Wednesday (not the most lovely of places) and there is a very slight problem, I have to start my journey before 0900, and I was wondering if anyone knew if you can still get cheap day or standard child singles between Nottingham and Grimsby at this time. Also, I think it's about a tenner after 9, but does anyone have a rough idea how much more it'll cost?
    Thanks

    Before 0900, have a try at getting some AP tickets...

    if you split at Sheffeild you might be able to get from Nottingham - Sheffeild - Grimsby Town, possibly all on AP tickets...

    Don't let Jordy hear you say that! ;)

    Try the following:

    STD Day Single Nottingham-Sheffield (£6)
    TPE Advance Sheffield-Grismby (£2-£3.25 depending on which train you get)

    don't really want to go via sheffield, can't be a***d really, and I wanted to do some filming at lincoln whilst I wait for a connection. And I've made arrangements with family already, I'm on a tight schedule lol. Would it make much difference splitting tickets at Newark or Lincoln?

    Splitting at Lincoln is your best bet, singles come to £8.40 (as opposed to a straight through SOS which is £9.25)

    decided on SOS, didn't realise there's not a lot of comparison splitting, and I can't be bothered doing that, but thanks for the help guys 8)
