I dont suppose the trains will be too much of an issue for players, they are so unreliable on the weekend in normal times that it is a huge gamble to use them and one that will invariably end in a taxi bill for hundreds of pounds when you get trapped on sunday evening after an especially long game
I missed the last rail connections back to Paignton by about 3 hours, and finished about 100 minutes after everyone else, at the round 4 Feb 4NCL, after getting embroiled in yet another R+B v R. But it was worth it....for me anyway.

That must have made you really popular with the arbiting team. I think that you should offer them a free lecture on how to play the R+B v R ending.

I actually did get a lift from an arbiter! Alan Atkinson kindly dropped me off at St Albans, from where I was able to make my way to London Victoria coach station and catch the 11pm night coach back to Paignton.
