Advert - British Rail excursion (1940's)

Click to Enlarge

King's Cross to Doncaster for the St Leger for only £1 11s 9d (£1.58 or allowing for inflation £59.75) or if you were posh 1st class for £2 13s (£2.65 or £99 after inflation). The journey took 3hours and 30 minutes whereas now it would be about 1hour 45 minutes (unless there were leaves on the line) and the first class return would set you back £285
