    Quite fancied an overnight in Edinburgh at £30rtn, but rather taters in Jan.

    I've got Wolverhampton for the same, going to have to try and find somewhere new to go. I also got a ticket on the slow line to Edinburgh for £14.00 as stage one of my attempt to get to the Wick JDW!

    Which is the slow line? Not the Waverley route surely?

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    It's the one from Euston via Brum and Wolverhampton. It's only slow because of the W Midlands section, once it leaves Wolverhampton it's pretty quick. I used it to get to Lancashire in January. There were no cheap tickets to Preston but I got a discounted advance to Brum and Brum to Preston on the same train in the same seat for £10.60.
    I'm intending to use the Waverley line to access the three Borders JDWs in June.
