UK Train Links - Cheaper fares and general hackery
Placeholder: useful train travelling links that help me from time to time:
http://www.brtimes.com/ - all train times & nerdy info.
http://www.brfares.com/ - all train fares & nerdy info.
http://data.atoc.org/routeing-guide - Big map of what we’re allowed to do with our tickets.
http://www.trainscanbecheaper.info/ - uses routeing guide to get technically cheapest fare from A to B. Apparently going via Belfast to Edinburgh is the cheapest way from Reading, but incredulous - *who* would do that?
http://splitticketing.com - does something more clever and combines the ATOC information with the train time information and gives you viable cheapest routes by split-ticketing
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/cdn/static/cms/documents/london-rail-and-tube-services-map.pdf - Because I *always* end up googling this - the big London Connections map (basically the Oyster map plus a few bits like Heathrow Express).
http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/static/documents/content/nationalrailnetworkmapZoom.pdf- the big map of all trains.
http://www.railforums.co.uk/ - general forum of win
http://nrodwiki.rockshore.net/index.php/Main_Page - A wiki of open rail data, codes and what they mean - helps decode brtimes.com
http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk - get to your platform earlier than everyone else with a smug grin…

what this made me realise is that helen’s certainty implies that dash and violet were both showing signs of their powers as infants and that is the funniest thing i have ever thought of in my life because one has super speed and one turns invisible can you picture first-time parents trying to deal with a baby that sometimes fucking disappears
