DH Train

No sign of a DH Train yet. Not to worry too much as the train prices are a lot less than they were last time. £55 for the return trip thats a under 25 ticket mind you.

So, i also tweeted DH to ask if there will be a DH train this year with no response. So..

      Spoiler! The following block of text might contain a spoiler. Click to toggle spoiler

Prices based on 4 Youth 21-25 & 3 Adults.

I'm assuming Mark is around 25? Not a clue about Androm so put him as an adult.

The one's i have highlighted come to 3837 SEK (Roughly £52 per person).

Shall we book it? Either way, it's quicker and around the same price as last time.

Merson, good job. We won't be able to fit everyone into a carridge (max 6 people), do you know what "sort" of seat we'd get?

Normal one, it's not a sleeper train. (It might be one if we go early enough in the morning.

Can always get the 5am one then? Would be cheaper. I set the time from 6am so i'm guessing there will be a lot more choice as well.

Yeah, it really wasn't that far last time. Plus we shouldn't have too much baggage.

Shall we set a time when we can get on a do it? Or just let one person rage buy it and owe them money?

I'd rather be sat on a train for 5 hours than a bus for 8...

Also, why do we need to be first in the queue? We didn't get there in any hurry last time and we were still set up 4 hours before the event officially started.
