Summerseat Roadworks Special Fares

The East Lancashire railway has been made aware of roadworks taking place in Summerseat Village from mid-July to mid-September.

The railway really does consider itself part of the local community and would therefore like to lend a helping-hand during the ongoing works by offering heavily discounted Residents Permit rates for those boarding the train at Summerseat Station for the duration of the disruption.

The discounted rates are as follows (please note that they do not cover activities at special events):

  • Freedom of the Line (unlimited travel) = £9.00
  • Full Line Return Adult = £6.00
  • Full Line Return Concession/Child = £4.00

We hope that this will go a little way to help during this tumultuous time.

Card holding members of the Ramblers' Association may travel at Concessionary fares. While such members are likely to purchase single tickets, all concessionary fares are available to them should they wish. Concessionary fares are available every weekend except Day Out With Thomas.

Boundless
