Will it also work on the underground/buses? Is there any sort of reciprocal agreement with the railways?
Better yet, you can use them when you buy tickets on Trainline.com. So, even more of a fare reduction.No idea but it will get you 30% discount at all station retail outlets.
That’s a tall claim. What about the mountains in Scotland, Wales and northern England? Sparsely populated areas? I know there were mountain railways and the Ft William line etc, but those weren’t everywhere. It would mean you could draw a circle on a map of 10 miles diameter and not hit a railway line. That would surprise me, if universally true.( In 1960, nowhere in Britain was more than five miles from a railway station. The food and service may have been atrocious, but it worked, mostly. )
While a nice little bonus, it not exactly life changing or essential for the majority of people.
I do however see a rise in people claiming to be veteran for having been kicked out in basic training 20 years ago.
