Re. Flexible ticket from Newcastle to Alnmouth

Options
I am looking at a possible Advance ticket from London Kings X to Newcastle and then a separate Transpennine  ticket from Newcastle to Alnmouth. Last time I did a similar trip, I didn't need to buy the Transpennine ticket in advance. Is that still the case?

    There is no need to buy any ticket in advance, walk up anytime and off peak fares are available. However an Advance ticket is the cheapest.

    However, given how LNER has changed their ticket pricing, you might want to check the pricing of a ticket all the way through to Alnmouth, especially for a return, and also check pricing in LNER website vs. Transpennine website.

    On the LNER website, KGX to Newcastle will be calculated using "new" LNER ticket pricing policy, but a through ticket beyond which needs another railway should be calculated the "old" way (i.e. the same way as all other operators)

    Yes actually I looked at a through ticket yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It was less than when I previously looked at it (not long ago). That was on the LNER site. I haven't looked at the Transpennine site.
