    Worked out cheaper than buying one ticket for the whole journey but he and his girlfriend had to juggle with 56 tickets, fair play if it works out cheaper, you wouldn't want to lose a ticket.

    To be fair half of them look like the seat reservation so that's "only" split 7 times each way per person. Still ridiculous though, train travel in this country is beyond a joke.

    Earning cash for making an effort, fair play.
    Shouldn't have to be doing that though.
