This pass is valid for travel after 8.45am Monday–Friday and all day on weekends and bank holidays. This restriction does not apply if you are travelling from Lockerbie to Carlisle on direct services only, although in this case the time restriction would then apply to onward journeys from Carlisle. Likewise this time restriction does not apply if you’re travelling on a direct service from any station between Barrow in Furness and Carlisle or vice versa, although the time restriction would then apply to onward journeys from Carlisle or Barrow in Furness.
