Re: [aiwa] The Golden age of Groundhopping or Reply Privately

The cheap day returns were actually cut back to their present geographical level in the summer of 1985, when the misleadingly-named 'saver' ticket was introduced. Prior to this you could buy a day return to anywhere in the UK where, as the timetable book put it, it was possible to spend a "reasonable amount of time at the destination."

My own personal favourite season though, is 1983-84 as this was the first season in which I attended early evening kick-offs, starting with an FA Cup replay at Tunbridge Wells that kicked off at 5.30pm. Best of all, the good weather that season meant that I managed to watch a game on every Saturday from 6th August up to 12th May, including Xmas Eve. (1982-83 had seen me mess up one Saturday.)
