HOW BRIGG FOLK CAN ENJOY A DAY TRIP TO LEEDS & BACK FOR LESS THAN £27
Yes, it's possible for people to travel from Brigg to Leeds and back for less than 27 quid - if you follow the simple ticket-buying instructions given here by Paul Johnson.
As regular followers of this blog will be aware, Paul works diligently to increase passenger numbers on the Saturday-only service along what he calls the iconic Brigg line between Sheffield and Cleethorpes.
He tells us: "Here are the train times for anyone in Brigg or Kirton In Lindsey who wishes to take the train on a Saturday for a day trip to Leeds."
Kirton In Lindsey 0915
Barnetby 0952 (Platform 3 )
Retford 1647 ( Platform 4 )
Kirton In Lindsey 1715
PAUL'S TOP TIP
"To save a bit of money on a direct fare, customers are advised to split their train ticket at Doncaster.
"Buy one from the guard on the train at Kirton In Lindsey or Brigg to Doncaster day return, £11.70 for adults, £5.85 for children.
"Then purchase off the guard a Doncaster to Leeds day return, £15.70 for Adults and £7.85 for children.
"Total fare £27.40 return for Adults and £13.70 for Children (5-16)."
Paul has previously explained how you can get to Newark and Lincoln for bargain prices from Brigg by train. We've followed his advice several times recently to visit our county capital on a Saturday.
