    Doubt you'll potd. I tried to book on this a month ago, and was told it was fully booked. Good value from Kettering at £79. Instead I have booked on the Waverly on sunday(believing it was Scotsman hauled) ,and that's costing me £99, plus petrol for the 320 mile round trip to West Yorkshire. By the way, Wcrc trips both ways on s&c are only £59! Why the £40 difference?
