Meeting time is 11:00 under the departure boards at Manchester Piccadilly. We'll be getting the 11:19 Northern service, which stops at a number of stations: https://traintimes.org.uk/manchester/marple/10:49/2020-02-29 The cheapest ticket is an off-peak day return which costs £5.60. Marple is part of the Greater Manchester ticketing area, so if you have a travelcard with a rail component (e.g. a County Card) you can use that instead of having to buy a separate ticket. There are two return trains an hour at approximately xx:07 and xx:40, and we should be back in Manchester by 16:00.
