A spokesman for Northern said: “On January 3 (Wednesday), we’ll be launching £1 train tickets right across our network – so you can make more of the moments that matter to you!

“Whether it’s to reunite with the grandkids, catching up with mates, or going on an adventure to somewhere you’ve never been before – you can #GoDoYourThing this New Year for less!

“Signing up to our mailing list is the best way to know when these tickets are live! You don’t want to miss out on this one.”
