Hello Experienced Ones. I need to book tkts from York to Glasgow mid May. There is a chance I will need to get off in Edinburgh to meet family. "It's complicated." (I have checked the times and stops -it seems to be the same train from York that goes through Edinburgh and on to Glasgow.)
While I know it would be cheating to get off and get back on in lieu of buying 2 separate tickets and that also would be unfair to go further than I've paid for, is it grossly improper to slip off in Edinburgh and not finish the trip to Glasgow?
Practically speaking, will I get caught, and what are the consequences?
