Are high fares were encouraging people to abandon the trains in favour of their cars?

The cost of train travel could fall next year after ministers confirmed they have rejected a request from operators to ensure fares keep rising.

Half the UK's fares are currently allowed to rise by 1% above inflation.

In the event of a general 1% drop in prices, these fares would have to fall and such deflation now seems likely.

Transport Minister Lord Adonis told MPs that the existing fares formula would remain in place and therefore prices could potentially come down next year.

The person could have flown up to Glasgow from Newquay Airport in Cornwall 'from £39' each way and then taken the train to the Kyle of Lochalsh. Much quicker I would have thought, provided Mr Doe didn't have an aversion to flying of course. TC.
