Why I don’t travel by train.


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.
