  20. Cycle-Rail:  National Rail to ascertain bicycle carriage rules for each individual train you are considering (they differ a lot) then for cycle space booking use one of the Train Operating Companies that still use the ‘mixing desk’ booking system – see web-published Google Doc – some say it is best to stick with one, opening a user account so you keep a record of bookings. Others use filters to separate out train booking confirmsations into their own folders. Specialist info on trains out of Sheffield:  Cycle-Rail Forum for the North
