Google Surprises Again

Just looking at feasibility of getting down to Backpackers Club AGM and Lightweight equipment and tent show (link) later this month in Derbyshire. When I saw that the train would come in at Matlock, I asked Google for directions to Ashford-in-the-water. It gave me the option to "take public transport". link Wow.

At £100 - £176 for a single train ticket, I think my original answer stands. Sorry, but too far to go this time.

Pricing for trains seen crazy at times, its a wonder that they run at all.

I've managed to get a return to Aviemore for only £61; I can't get to the lakes for that price.

It's a seat on the night train but for that price I can live with it.

I can't imagine that the trains overnight will be busy, but what the heck, these guys are the professionals, so the pricing structure must make sense to someone. And not just be jibberish made up on the back of a fag packet by people who have chauffeur driven cars.

Hey ho, life goes on.
