Good to hear your good fortune after the near miss with work
Try booking on the Carlisle to Workington train, which has only three available slots. Workington to Newcastle and the East coast is probably the most popular long distance cycle route (C2C) in Britain. It would make sense to return to Workington on the train. Getting from Newcastle to Carlisle on Virgin isn't a problem. However, as described above Carlisle to Workington only has three cycle spaces. This results in most people having to travel back by car from Newcastle, doubling CO2 emissions. The C2C ride has hundreds of people doing it each year, simply adding a carriage with multiple bike slots would save lots of CO2 emissions and traffic congestion.
In the 1970's I did quite a lot of train travel. Back then the service and quality of carriages were abysmal. At least now if your train is late, or cancelled you get a refund.
All I'm saying is that in my experience over 11 years I have not had a problem apart from one cancellation. 5 years ago in the Lakes I walked into Windermere rail station after 5 days of non stop rain and asked for the cheapest ticket back to Nottingham, after 20 minutes I was issued with a ticket with the first two trains 1st class and the other two standard. Every connection was on time and the cost was £22. That's why I like public transport
There used to be a bus from Betws y Coed to Pen y Pass - still going ??
Park your car somewhere safe along this bus route and exit the bus at the start of your hike. ??
