We were gob smacked at the fare to Newcastle, 300, we thought we had miss heard and rewound it...I immediately said it would be cheaper to fly which the man buying also mentioned.
Everyone always says that, I've said it myself a few times, but they always compare a very expensive last-minute train ticket with a cheap plane ticket booked in advance.
Try booking a flight Friday afternoon returning Sunday afternoon on both types of transport the same weekend and you'll find they both take a lot of money off you! If the last-minute rail price was 300 and the air fare a lot less then they would sell no last-minute rail tickets!
I can think of better ways of spending 300 but I guess at those prices it's probably companies paying.
