Ad­vance rail book­ing farce

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

RAIL pas­sen­gers are be­ing blocked from book­ing ad­vanced tick­ets on one of the UK’S busiest routes.

Firms are ob­li­gated to of­fer tick­ets 12 weeks in ad­vance but some trav­ellers are un­able to book week­end trips in early March, seven weeks away.

Train firms blame en­gi­neer­ing work on the East Coast Main Line from Lon­don to Scot­land.

Jacque­line Starr, of the Rail De­liv­ery Group, said: “Firms are work­ing hard to get back to nor­mal.”
