TRAIN passengers could pick up a bargain at the end of this summer after Northern announced there will be tens of thousands of advanced purchase 10p tickets up for grabs.

The move coincides with 15 new trains on the Northern network thanks to a £500m investment funded by Eversholt.

The new trains include free WiFi, air conditioning, seat charging and more spacious and comfortable carriages.

Last week, Northern also started the retirement of Pacer trains.

To celebrate, more than 80,000 10p tickets are available to those using Northern’s services with kids tickets available for 5p.

Tickets can be bought in advance from today, Monday while all travel must take place between September 1 and 30.

David Brown, Northern’s managing director, said: “We had an exciting start to the summer with the launch of our first brand new trains. And we continued the great news for customers with the first Pacer retiring.

“Now, with better trains already on the network, we want to celebrate the end of summer with an offer that gives thousands of people outstanding value travel.

“Tickets for 10p and 5p for children are available when booked in advance through the Northern website or app.

"No discount codes are needed, simply search for a journey and, if it’s on one of our Advance Purchase routes, you’ll be able to get the reduced rate.”
