    Ok, thanks C. Does this mean, though, that others cannot view the crawl until it is saved, which I believe makes it unchangeable?

    The prices you guys have to pay to get to Birmingham eh!

    If I want to come it'll cost me £38 ish for specific trains at a specific times. What a rip off!

    Crazy!
    If you could hack a 2-hr coach trip, there are £4e/w options available from Manchester at www.megabus.com

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Similar megabus deal at £5e/w (from, say, Leeds) but, as a&h pointed out, the rtn trip could seem longer than 3 hours when full of ale, unless a strong bladder allows sleep.

    Whatever happened to that " traditional cry of old London Town" ,how did it go?

    "Stop the bus, Stop the bus. We want a WEE WEE ".

    On second thoughts it could get you thrown off a long way from home. Best of Luck Chaps and have a great time but beware Brummies have a strange sense of humour as well as a weird accent.

    Megabus do claim to have onboard toilets.

    They claim to do Brum to Manc in 2 - 2.5 hours. Not on a Friday at about 7 p.m. I'll bet. Lets all play park on the M6.

    Yep, they do have a loo but you wouldn't want to use it twice, or sit near it. If you get a double decker, the upstairs seats are pretty spacious but not sure any heating reaches up there.
    The schedule for the friday aint so bad from M/C - 09:50 arr 11:40, rtn 20:00 arr 22:00. Terminus 5min walk from Wellington.
    In fact, it's only 30mins longer than the train(!), so the still-available £4 e/w ain't bad.

    Rob,

    Southern are currently showing me a £28.60 Off Peak Return from Manchester to Birmingham - add your journey to Piccadilly on to that. That return would be valid on most trains at the time you'd want to travel, I would think.

    Right - this may be what you need. Try Crewe to Birmingham. Southern (again) and Virgin both have fares at £7 each way. I'm sure you should be able to get from Rochdale to Crewe and back for a reasonable amount (£13.70, it seems). I've not looked at Manchester to Crewe (you may have cheaper options for getting to the city centre from where you live).

    Try a few options (if you have the patience!). You may find something at a sensible price.

    See you in Birmingham then
