    I hope not, because I've got four days out booked (Lincoln, Lancaster, Settle and Clitheroe) for £4.15! (Had to fork out £3.15 on a leg of one journey with no 10p fare available.)

    It is, my advice is stop down south in lovely, lovely Basingstoke, that idyllic market town immortalised by Thomas Hardy as "Stoke Barehills", Ah I often regret leaving the place for Yorkshire with its broad vista of flatcaps, whippets and smoking chimneys.

    PS I forgot t'consumption, cough.

    Default Optimal time when buying advanced fares to Preston.

    Looking forward to the Preston crawl,does anyone know how the dynamic pricing works on advanced fares and is there an optimal time to make the purchase ?

    It seems to me that when advanced fares are first advertised 3 months in advance,the pricing is very high to catch out anybody who is desperate to secure their travel plans that far in advance,and dynamic pricing doesn't kick in until the train operators are more fully aware of high levels of unsold seats many weeks later.

    Any help gratefully received

    Looking for a fare to Leeds 08 Feb, rtn 09Feb, but LNER website still states that they have not yet confirmed timetable, so cannot offer advanced fares - how on earth can they not yet have a timetable for trains leaving less than 4 weeks from now??
    The only fare currently visible is £116 rtn!!
