    Megatrain - gone? 8th Oct 17 at 11:01 PM
    Does anyone know what's happened to Megatrain? I used to book tickets between Nottingham and London regularly, and there were some great bargains if you booked far enough in advance. But I haven't had occasion to travel for the last year or so, and now I come to look for a ticket again, the Megabus website seems to only be offering me coach tickets.

    Has Megabus/Megatrain stopped offering train tickets on this route, or entirely? Or am I just being dense and going to the wrong site, or missing the right option to click on?

    Megatrain's only route now appears to be from St Pancras to East Midlands Parkway.

    Megatrain is owned by Stagecoach, so if they lose a regional rail franchise, they no longer offer Megatrain ticketing on those services. They've ceased to operate on London to the South West services since SWT lost the franchise to South Western Trains, and East Midlands Trains are the only ones currently offered.
