Organising the train for tomorrow

March 25, 2011

For tomorrow’s Windows 7 Mobile workshop, I had researched what the cheapest price was to get from London to Birmingham, despite finding the very cheapest at £17.50, the times seemed too late to arrive to Birmingham as well as leaving at midnight. I had then been able to select a single ticket at £13.00 but does involve missing two hours of the event, as well as being on a relatively slow train at 2 hours 15 minutes.

Once off the train at Birmingham New Street Station, the location is not too far away, about a ten minute walk to The Studio on Cannon Street.

Today, I had booked the train ticket at a reasonable £30.00, £15.00 per single ticket one way which is fairly reasonable with reasonable train journey time of 1 hour 25 minutess, but does involve getting up at 6am, to catch the 7.25am fast train from London Euston to Birmingham New Street. Hopefully I can get some good ideas and a base project for a WP7 application by then.
