    Palace away on 2nd January is looking rather tricky from Leicester on the train. Does anyone suggestion any alterative rail route into London?

    There are two options. Leicester - Nuneaton, Nuneaton to London, or Leicester to Peterborough, Peterborough to London.

    Why do you think it's tricky?

    It looks like a decent service.

    What's looking tricky about it? Seems trains running normal weekday schedule according to East Midlands Trains

    Sunday 1 and Monday 2 January

    A half-hourly train service will run between London St Pancras International and Bedford. An hourly train service will run between East Midlands Parkway and Derby/Sheffield, and also between East Midlands Parkway and Nottingham.

    Buses will replace trains between:


    • Bedford and East Midlands Parkway (half hourly, direct bus service)
    • Bedford and East Midlands Parkway (half hourly, calling at all intermediate stations)
    • Bedford and Leicester (hourly, direct bus service)
    • Leicester and Loughborough / East Midlands Parkway
    Maybe I am mis-reading it.

    Either way it's £50 return.

    I don't see any difficulty. Has the game been moved to 7am?

    It's already been played. Finished 3-2 to City.

    I love 3-2 games. Just like Blackpool away.

    Was I there, or has my run ended?

    The train ticket sites are showing normal services for the day. They are not showing any cheap advance tickets though, which sometimes happens if there's a chance of engineering work. As the info has been on the National Rail site for a week there's no excuse for the ticket sites to be wrong, so maybe the engineering work is not definite at the moment. The East Midlands Trains site may have more reliable info.

    The EMT site has the same info as the National Rail site. So the ticketing websites (including the EMT site) are selling tickets for trains that don't exist.

    What I was hinting at! :icon_wink

    East Midlands Train site says no engineering works on the route for that day. However, it's confirmed works only go as far as Christmas. EDIT: MAYBE NOT!

    Re: Go Away

    Both routes have replacement buses on them.

    National Express looks the most simple option.

    Re: Go Away

    They didn't when I checked the other day. It looks like the ticket websites have caught up with the engineering work, Leicester - London is now showing a crap service too.
