Rail fares!

Fuxing hell they are ridiculous aren't they!?
Just been investigating getting to some away games and the train is no longer an option - its got beyond a farce!
When I was a student 10 years ago, washing pots and doing bar shifts to make ends meet I used to be able to get on a train to away games - now as a fully fledged wage earner I can't justify the cost of even getting to locations as close as Newport or Swindon by train! Fuxing £80 to get to Newport!!! Less to get to Vienna and back in December!
Who the hell is getting on trains these days?
At least its making some shareholders richer and fatter eh!? Pure greed

Yep.

Andover to Mansfield - £147. Almost spat my dentures out.

Hells bells. £147.00 and you end up in Mansfield. Frightening.
They should be paying you
