i worked in wales for a wee while...a train from london to newport costs in the region of £120 and that is not even first class!
its probably more now for that poxy 1.5 hour journey!

but if i go after 9:30am or something then my ticket is greatly reduced...i was a business traveller so i didnt care...

but wheres the logic here...no normal people travel before 9nish cos of the prices but after 9 the trains are jam packed!

walla empty trains arriving into wales...well done mr transport secratary!!!

At the moment it's actually cheaper to buy two singles from for the Cardiff-London route, you have to get them on the net well in advance though. The coach is loads cheaper though national express £12 return (funfare), which isn't too bad.

true...if you book your tickets well in advance it can be so much cheaper...but how many people actually book there train tickets weeks in advance anyway? and dont travel at peak time?

sqaused on the frigging tubes every morning in london! hmmm maybe that explains why so many people drive into work, they might be stuck in a traffic jam! but at least in comfort were me! i am stuck with dirty, smelly, sweaty londoners! in a hot non airy tube!
