"Rail firms 'overcharge passengers'". So, some group sets out with the deliberate intention of catching out the train operators by asking for ticket-price quotes for journeys where a gazillion routes and fare combinations apply and - what do you know? - they succeed - although not to quite the same extent as they did last time this was tried.

Strange that in the days when Britain's rail network was much closer to a free market, the fare system was much simpler. Could it be that state-imposed fare control and franchising just might have added to the confusion?
