  • Presume a 16:30 train heading north with a bike will be ok in terms of OFF PEAKness?
    I need to get me and myself to Clit-hero, sorry, Clitheroe Fri night and then back again either late Sunday or Monday.

  • Assuming you're going via Virgin then it's fine (although only on Friday). On the Monday you'll generally need to be getting the train after 9.30am (although there are a few strange rules).

    I'm pretty sure the Preston to Clitheroe bit doesn't have peak trains (admittedly it barely has trains). There's a first come, first served bike section or you can just squeeze it in on the doorways I've found.

    From a London terminal? I would be careful with exactly when off-peakedness finishes for the afternoon, eg. the last train may be 16:23.

  • They've abolished peak trains on Friday afternoons on Virgin West Coast. (Probably because the whole of Euston was hanging around until 7pm and then attempting to leg it onto a rammed train).

  • It'll be Fri but I want the least hassle so if I can get out of work for a 16:30ish train I'd rather that than the later ones, which, if full, will leave me fucked and having to get super late ruining the point of booking a hotel up there.
