Travelling from Slaithwaite to Sheffield?

The new timetable changes are creating some fare anomalies.

Anyone travelling from Slaithwaite to Barnsley or Sheffield would, until the timetable change, have changed at Huddersfield on to a Penistone line train. Off-peak return cost to Sheffield £10.60.

National Rail’s journey planner now shows the quickest route as being via Leeds. The catch is that via Leeds it’s an anytime return at £20.90 (though the off-peak day return to Barnsley is valid via Leeds).

The lower fare to Sheffield is still available via the Penistone line, but it’s even slower than at present, with a 52′ connection at Huddersfield. Enter “via Denby Dale” in the journey planner to find the lower fare.
