Yesterday Myself, Mrs FE, The Boy, and his Partner, travelled from Darlington to York and back. A round total of 110 miles.
I have just calculated that we most certainly should have taken the car.
Total cost by train £63. (One member of the party had a senior rail card).
Total cost if we had taken the car. £4.20.
Thereby showing that travelling by train is 14 times more expensive than going by car. And as an aside, going by car guarantees a seat.
