    Just to let anyone know who is getting the x52. The bus no longer picks up outside the station. You now have to catch it from over the road beside the old building which ends in institute.

    Derby Blockade is now on, coming from the East change at Nottingham for the X52 bus to Towers, severely reduced service to Derby, including bus replacement from Uttoxeter,

    I have done the drive between the two, that was bad enough.
    If you are planning riding at both parks in one day, using public transport, i take my hat off to you.
    That is one complex blend of dual geekery.

    Obvious question: why not just do the travel outside of park hours if you're doing it over 2 days anyway?

    For the geekiness of doing both in a single day.
    If it was possible to return on the Saturday I would have.

    When you figured out you could, you forgot to ask whether you should.

    ;)

    For anyone catching the train there are signalling works on. Need to check what's happening before you travel

    Most of the train booking websites show planned disruptions but not always the same sites apps!
