Rail Pricing Grumble

Went to Leeds for the weekend, an hour and a quarter journey, and paid £42.20 for an open return. OK now I realise I could have booked in advance and got it cheaper but that is still some price for the 85.4 mile journey from Durham.

Is this getting comparable with the price of a taxi? Yes it is! http://taxiroute.co.uk/ quoted me £130 1 way, so if there were 4 of you going you could do the same return trip for £65 each. OK not quite there yet but it should never be an option to get a taxi over a train!
