Look like an absolute nightmare as currently is?

 

4 and a quarter hours each way and £60 return from Basingstoke, and 5 hours each way from Southampton, best part of £90 return. Crazy.

Go via Cambridge from Kings Cross. Also worth looking at split ticket option, I looked at using network railcard as far as Ely then separate ticket from there to Norwich. Not too bad, but the main route Liverpool St to Norwich is unusable that weekend, shame as that's normally a decent journey.

Managed to get 20 pound return with a railcard from Liverpool Street, changing at Cambridge.

Correct, just checked and you can get a split return ticket for circa £33, arriving at 12.45 and leaving just before 6.30pm.

Any trains are a nightmare at the moment with the freight derailment at Eastleigh.

You'd like to think they'll have fixed that by 14th March, tbh

Still a huge amount of tickets available for this, we've taken 4 blocks, and only sold 1 and half so far...hopefully the club don't use this game as an example to not take large allocations in the future.

In the 'Allocations' thread yesterday 'oldsarum' said there's only a couple of hundred left from the full allocation, he's normally fairly sound on these matters.

We took four blocks F,G,H and J. Only tickets left in block F which is the far corner.

 

J sold out quick and last ticket in G went today.

 

Once the block is sold the drop down option is removed so you might be thinking we've only sold one block and a bit because the other blocks are not there. Its the other other way around.

Ah - I see, that's good news then...! Especially given how much of a pain travel is.

Yeah out of 2600 allocation about 100 left, that should help encourage to take more than the minimum going forward.

Yep, not bad going for a month still until the game.

If you use a ticket splitting website I found tickets from London £25pp, annoyingly no direct trains out of Liverpool Street.

 

I'm just hoping they put on enough carriages for the crowds, I remember going up a few seasons back and about 400 of us squeezed into a 4 carriage Pacer equivalent with no loo for over an hour.

Yeah London Kings Cross to Cambridge or Ely will be fine, it’s the regional service from there to Norwich which isn’t used to large numbers travelling.

I've had a quiet 20 minutes at work so taken a look at trains, I'm going to go for the 10:13 from Kings Cross as the connection is a Greater Anglia which is a train like THIS rather than one like THIS
