Sundown is at 8? As if it is.

 

It's about 8 now. It'll be 10 at least by mid August. Surely?

I've been thinking more about transport recently and it occurred to me that there are sort of "boarders" with train lines and companies.

 

For example, when I'm visiting my girlfriend I get a train from Sheffield to Leeds and then one from Leeds to Skipton, but I pay for it as one ticket "Sheffield to Skipton" and deal with the changes myself etc etc.

 

But, I recently found out that if I buy two lots of tickets, one from Sheffield to Gargrave (I think, it might be somewhere else) and then one from Gargrave to Skipton, it costs me less to go exactly the same distance, via exactly the same trains.

 

So I'm thinking, there must be other places along practically every train line in the country where the fair for the ticket sort of "ticks over" to the higher end of the fair price, so if I (or anyone else) books their train to the NAE by booking tickets to all the stations prior to this illusive fair boundary station, then tickets to the next one and the next one, instead of just buying one ticket for the entire journey, it might come out costing something reasonable. Not something mental like the £300 odd I was quoted for the other day.

 

Don't suppose anyone either a: understands what I mean, or b: knows where all these train fee boarders are?

 

I think I might take a trip to my local station and quiz them on it, then see if that, combined with booking in advance can be used to make it an affordable trip. 'Cos at the moment, getting a lift, or a coach, is looking like my only options and neither of them seem that plausible, or likely to happen.

National Express is a coach service right?

 

I've found a pair of return tickets for about £90 but it takes about 8 hours to get there =/ which is a bit steep considering the amount of time it takes, it more than doubles the amount I was planning on spending...
