Barnsley away 17/8/19 advanced purchase train tickets

This one is a big problem due to bus services in and out of Barnsley.  The normal routes via Doncaster and Sheffield are affected with this.

Kings Cross to Doncaster, then Doncaster to Barnsley via Meadowhall seems to be the better option, particularly if you want to avoid buses for rail replacement services.

There are lots of trains in and out of Doncaster at £14.50 singles, then a £6.60 return Doncaster to Barnsley...............changing at Meadowhall.

All prices shown are before railcard discounts.  @clb74 may be able to confirm groups of 3 or more can get a 33% discount also.

    For those that don’t know, if buying a railcard use Tesco vouchers if you have them as it effectively makes the card half price.

    and if anybody knows an even better way of getting a railcard could they post it on this thread 
  • If youve got an annual gold card for trains you can also get one of them railcards for £10
