  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?!?!?!?
  2. Ring the gentleman in the Bangladesh call centre... He will (maybe) know

  5. 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.
