Sheffield trains 20:24 - Dec 10 with 2867 viewsWatford_Ranger

Long time since I did Hillsborough by train. There’s a 5:31 back home. Is it still a nightmare getting back to the station and I should just accept my fate of killing time there before the 6:31?

Zero chance of making 5:31. Unless you have a Ferrari taxi waiting in Leppings Lane.

Unless you leave early you won't get the 17:30

Ferrari or Lada... Won't make any difference when the traffic's crawling.
Matches routinely end after 5pm now, I'd suggest being lively and on your toes simply to ensure getting the 6:31!
As others say, folks should forget the 5:31 unless they have a habit of stropping off at half-time if we're not winning.

Back in blighty this week and was also tempted and researching trains to Wednesday. Just seems a pain getting to the ground from the station.

I’m staying in Northwood if anyones contemplating driving. It’s that or dagenham and Redbridge vs Wealdsone.

Yeh you got no chance of the 530, unless we're 4-0 down and you fancy ditching out on 60 minutes. We're on the half six which will be... lively.

Easy enough get the blue line tram from Station to Malin Bridge get off at top of Leppings Lane

Sheffield is bigger than one thinks. You'd be pushing it to get that train from Sheff Utd, but no chance from Wednesday. Trust me, I've truly fcked up in Sheffield on a couple of occasions.

Luckily one of the best pubs in the city is the one at the station.

Thanks all. Might take the opportunity to get some steps in and do the 3 miles back on foot, taking in some of the sights of suburban Sheffield en route to the 6:31 then.

Just noticed also that there appears to be no way of getting back to London by train from the Ipswich game.

You did actually used to be able to walk along the river from Hillsborough into the middle of town but having run that way while I was up there over the summer a big section of the river bank has been taken over by a travelling community and they didn't take kindly to me jogging through there. Neither did their various dogs.

I'm guessing this'll be Roma, not Irish. More likely to try and sell you a baby than a dag.

There is a bus replacement service for part of the journey,but the last time I looked there were a few trains back to London after the game but it will take a lot longer than normal.
The trains back after the game are 21.44,21.52,22.03,22.23 or 22.43.They all take between 2 hours 10 mins to 2 hours 25 to get back to civilisation because of buses between Witham and billericay.
I shall be probably drowning my sorrows in the Stowmarket Wetherspoons by 22.30.
