The relevant section is below:
If you're aged 50 or over you can visit some great places for as little as 5 or 10 return by train. What's more, its valid for up to 2 people travelling, each paying the offer price, so why not take a friend with you?

I see nothing other than this.

I had assumed that the friend didn't have to be over 50, since otherwise there's little point in mentioning it in the offer (two people over 50 could just fill in a voucher each and buy their own tickets).

However, on another forum somebody queried this with Central Trains, and got the following response:

I asked Central to clarify eligibility for this deal - given you could take a friend, did that person have to be over 50 too?

Central have (eventually) replied to to say:

"I can confirm that the offer is for the over 50's only and any accompanying adult who is under 50 must pay the normal fare."
