Great Central Railway leaflet containing fares of tourist tickets

Great Central Railway leaflet containing fares of tourist tickets

Back to the story
L2727. This is the front cover of a Great Central Railway leaflet produced in May 1922. Inside are the prices of the company's tourist tickets, available for journeys from Leicester, Loughborough, Lutterworth and Rugby to towns and cities all over the country. Compared with the many cheap excursions that were regularly organised by the Great Central travel agent, Dean & Dawson, these fares appear comparatively expensive. For instance, a third class ticket from Rugby to York cost a little over thirty shillings.
