Hi. I will be picking up my son from their dad's in Morpeth on the 10 th of August. I have a Railcard for the singles coming back with the children but I will be on my own on the way up. So far, It comes up at 90 pounds for a return by splitting the tickets. Leaving from Derby at 8:45 and coming back from Morpeth 11:45 (not direct) and arriving back at 15:26 in Derby. Just wondering if there were any cheaper tickets? I do this journey every half-term. Many thanks.

If she has a Railcard you can reduce the cost by a third.
If the train is very crowded then she might need to do this. There is no requirement to sit in your reserved seat, but if the seat that is yours for the first part of your journey has been reserved by someone else for the next part then you need to give up your seat if asked.
