    The revised plan, which is being brought in from Monday 12 September, will mean a number of changes for those using TPE’s services on the route between Manchester/Liverpool, Preston, Lancaster and Edinburgh/Glasgow.

    Well, rail had 35% of the London-Edinburgh rail-air market pre-pandemic. It's now over 50%, hitting 57% in favour of rail in April-August 2022 - making rail the market leader on this route. Something is clearly working...

    Anyone an expert in Scotrail off-peak tickets?

    Their Off Peak Train Tickets page says:

    "Off-Peak tickets can’t be used to travel to certain destinations on services from Glasgow Central, Glasgow Queen Street, Edinburgh Waverley, or Haymarket that leave after 16.42 and before 18.11."

    However, their Buy Tickets page offers me off peak return tickets for Waverley-Queen Street trains departing at those times. It doesn't offer me off peak day returns, though.

    Am I missing something, or is their information page wrong?

    Depart off-peak and return off-peak:

    EDB 1630 to GLQ 1714, and GLQ 2115 to EDB 2203, £14.10.

    Depart peak time, and return off-peak:

    EDB 1700 to GLQ 1748, and GLQ 2115 to EDB 2203, £19.10.

    Both are sold as an Off-Peak Return, even though one contains a journey to be made (and presumably costed) at peak time.

    Scotrail confirming on twitter that open returns (i.e., "off peak return" tickets rather than "off peak day return" tickets) can be used during the evening peak.

    Which isn't at all clear from their website.

    On New Year’s Day, LNER and CrossCountry services won’t operate between Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central. And there will be no New Year's Day trains running north of Edinburgh on LNER or CrossCountry. ScotRail doesn’t operate any services on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.
