Nothing on that website for those dates?

There's also a glaring error on the fares/timetable page...anyone else spot it?
(And a not very helpful piece of off-peak info too)

2nd March / tomorrow, with regret, is invite only but those who attended the meeting last Friday are aware of it and a news release will follow.   You will see the logic later.  1st and 26th April, publicity there / here shortly.

Not very helpful to the person who maintains the page (not me, but a member here) to be told there's a glaring error without saying what it is.  Please p.m. me or contact the secretary of the group - easier to deal with and put right if we know about it!

You can't buy a season for a period between 7 days & 1 month.

Not a serious error that needed correcting there & then, otherwise I would have memtioned it last night.

For what its worth, I've checked the wording on the website. It states 'Season tickets offering unlimited journeys between specified points (and intermediate stations) are available for periods ranging from 7 days to 1 year.' It does not state or imply any number of days from 8 to 356.
However I agree it couold be misleading, so I'll modify. Thanks for pointing it out.

You can only buy weeklies (one at a time), or monthlies. Monthlies can be extended by adding weekly and or daily tickets to a monthly, thus allowing any period between a monthly an annual.

Not sure why you can't buy two weeklies (to total a fortnight) in one go. And of course, adding daily tickets provides no further discount over what a weekly does.

But that does tally with offering 'periods ranging from 7days to one year'....just not including periods from 1 week to one month
