Club 55 is back for the Autumn.
The scheme now includes all First Group rail operators, as well as Arriva Trains Wales.
Here’s the details courtesy of TPE’s website.
I’ve just used it to go from Mobberley to Porthmadog, the long way round via Shrewsbury, Machynlleth and Barmouth. £16 from Mobberley, that’s £15 plus Arriva Trains Wales’ Manchester area Northern £1 add on. Normal price £53.50, so that’s a huge saving. All trains were on time.
Whilst there I travelled on the Welsh Highland Railway from Pont Croesor (4 miles north of Porthmadog), through the Aberglaslyn Pass and all the way to Caernarfon and return. Hauled by coal-fired South African Garrett no. 87, it was an amazing trip.
The offer runs until 30 November, so if you’re 55 or over, what’s stopping you!
