I'm researching train schedules and prices for my trip this summer to England. I can't decide whether I'm crazy or whether Trainline is the most frustrating website to use. The first few days I tried it, I really enjoyed the "Best fares for your journey" link that shows up in the upper right-hand corner and lets you look at five days at once to compare prices. Sometimes it's there on the screen when I put a new search in and sometimes it's not. Has anyone else noticed this, or is that option only available for certain cities?
Second question: is it just my imagination, or does Trainline randomly change the prices with no rhyme or reason? I'm looking as far out as I can (almost 12 weeks) and it seems to me like I see the cheapest available tickets, but then I'll look again in a few hours or the next day and those prices are gone. I'll look again in a day or so and the cheap prices are back. I know this because I've been taking notes on which days of the week had the cheapest prices for each day trip I'm considering.
