Earlier this week, the 26-30 railcard, allowing a 1/3 off rail travel went on sale for £30. Only there was a catch, only 10,000 were available in the government’s trial of the ‘millennial card’ and social media kicked off a storm when the website suffered big tech problems (unsurprisingly due to demand).
