Train help

#1
On 7th November (or 6th) I need to travel by train from one end of the country to Lancashire to pick up an 8 week old German Shepherd for our daughter, train prices are an absolute mystery, dont know whether am coming or going with all the different options and ranges of prices. I understand there is a website that finds the cheapest packages providing you are booking a good month in advance, could anyone give me a link or some ideas please, that would be muchly appreciated!

Ps... does anyone know why two singles can cost around the third of a price as the return ticket?!?!?!?

Yes, National Rail Enquiries.......try ringing them with the same question, three times and see how many different answerrs you get....You guessed it.....three. £89 return.......£156 return........£112 return. However, after waiting almost fifteen minutes for the first answer, you really need a lot of time on your hands to try this.

But thanks anyway - and yes, I am a lazy beansprout.
