Rail Fares

From Darius Battiwalla

80 percent rail fare increase?

Today I travelled as usual return from Mytholmroyd to Manchester.  I paid £6.50 by paying a couple of days in advance for Advance Singles.  

As from the timetable change on Monday Advance Singles to Manchester seem to have been abolished for all journeys from Hebden or Mytholmroyd regardless of how far in advance you book, so the same journey on the same trains next week will cost £11.70.  

Does anyone know if this was announced or perhaps even just a software glitch? I've emailed Northern Rail but no reply so far.
