    Overheard several comments regarding the steep Mid-Hants prices at the West Somerset today. Namely that the West Somerset was considered better value and they got the business. Must admit I would agree at £40, although Mid-Hants is a fraction too far me so merely hyperthetical. Loadings seemingly good at West Somerset and were excellent (almost record breaking) at the SVR a fortnight ago - price galas right and people will still come. However, in the current climate people will get increasingly choosy, me included I'm afraid.

    Depends where you live though doesn't it? Mid Hants for me is 100 mile round trip, Severn Valley 250, West Somerset 300. So, even if Mid Hants is £5 more per ticket its more cost effective.

    Mid Hants has the better reputation lately as well.
