Some information about travelling to MathsJam by train ...

Firstly, if you are unfamiliar with travelling by train in the UK, the page on train tickets has some general advice.

Secondly, the trains in the UK are currently undergoing some major traumas. Some drivers are starting to decline the opportunity to work overtime, and as a result some companies are finding themselves with scheduled trains that they are unwilling to guarantee will run. Which is fun.

The upshot is that you can search the websites and find the right trains, only to find (with some companies) that you can't actually buy tickets. Our experience is that if you manage to find a company that will sell you a ticket, then the travel will largely happen and have no unusual difficulties.


So ...

If travelling by train then you can aim for Stone station (SNE). There will be a volunteer-run shuttle service to meet each train, but it is most strongly advised that you let us know when you expect to arrive so our shuttle wrangler can send enough cars.

This is especially true if you are arriving on Friday, or if you are arriving Saturday before 10:30, or after 12:30. You can also call for a taxi from Stone.

Some delegates travelling by train meet up at their departure station or en route and start the MathsJam early.

Other stations to aim for are Stafford (STA) and Stoke-On-Trent (SOT). Both of these stations have taxi ranks, or you can reserve a private hire car. In those cases ask to be taken to Yarnfield Park. It might also be possible to coordinate with other delegates to share a ride.
