    So the "Midlands" crawl is so far South it's on the M25.

    No trains for me without going into London and back out.

    No Travelodge etc in St Albans.

    I doubt that I'll be doing this one.

    So, is it the Midlands next?

    The Midlands next after St Albans does seem to a fair call,so Derby must be in the running for the October/November crawl.

    Looking at Fridays ,the only dates I couldn't make in June and July are June 12th,June 26th and July 3rd.
    Looking at Saturdays the only dates I couldn't make would be June 27th and July 4th.

    Glad the some old faces such as Millay and Alesonly can make it along to St Albans.

    Well if we are going with a Friday then I'd have to say we should probably be looking at July 17th - pushing it as far back as possible without hitting school holidays. Gives people the best chance of getting advance fares that way.

    Look, let's save ourselves the hassle of doing this for the next one -

    St Albans next (south)

    Derby after (midlands)

    Than oop nurf again.

    There's no need to make things complicated - the poll tells us the next two we want quite clearly and it fits in with the general rhythm of splitting between top-middle-bottom of England.

    Sounds fair enough to me.

    ...except that it means always doing the North, sorry "nurf", in March/April, the South in summer and the Midlands in October/November. I like the idea of St Albans followed by Derby, and of course I'm in favour of spreading ourselves around in a fair and democratic fashion, but let's not get too rigid - apart from anything else, it means that any future new members will not have any say in where the next meet up is going to be. (Please see my post on the pre-poll thread for more details on this.)

    Friday July 17th looks good to me.

    Either way - let's bank Derby for post St Albans one way or t'other. We can do a poll on 'where up North' after St Albans

    One problem with St Albans is that it's on a main line route into & out of London, so all the cheap tickets on a Friday afternoon get snapped up really quickly, and it's not much better, if at all, in the morning. The only fares left on this line are going to be day returns, for those of us coming from "oop nurf", and even for those, like me, in possession of a Senior Railcard, the fares are eye-wateringly expensive.

    How about a Tuesday? (Though to be honest, the situation's not much better.)

    Derby, anyone?
