Start Crowther reports on the STV Forres site: "... for Forres to Aberdeen passengers booking in advance would pay an astonishing £29.60 for a return journey, nearly £13 more than the cheapest fare from Nairn where passengers using the same trains are charged £17."
The £17 deal for an advance return from Nairn to Aberrdeen is quite a good deal and a train trip to
twice as fast as the bus and comparable to a car journey. It is insane that
such a fare costs so much more from Forres however. As Stuart reports MSP
Richard Lochead is on the case. Let's hope the train company doesn't respond by
making Nairn residents pay £29.60 as well.
