    Would be a bit odd asking for that specific ticket at the ticket office though. But would love to pay just 25p.

    Amusing then that ScotRail have stopped you from buying a single from Tweedbank to Huddersfield from their own TVM at Tweedbank... but it's quite happy to dispense you a single to Altnabreac for £1.

    Are there any cross-border fares priced by Scotrail? They might be worth a look into if they've been newly created

    Yes, a number of other destinations are still available for £1 too!

    Whoops!

    Could ScotRail refund these and refuse to honour them (or require payment of an excess to the correct fare) in the manner of similar situations with online ordering of goods?

    If the tickets have actually been issued then I don't believe that they can. They could, I guess, refuse to allow collection of tickets bought online.

    As I've already collected my tickets I can't see how they could do. And anyway, it's a perfectly valid ticket type.

    Probably the last thing ScotRail wanted, AdTech is displaying it on some of its adverts

    Is there any way a list could be produced from BRfares.com or elsewhere, showing up all the destinations available for £1 ?

    Sounds like somebody made a bit or a error on these.

    According to this Twitter exchange from Scotrail it appears they've backed down on their original stance

    It would even appear that sale tickets are available via Berwick-upon-Tweed.
