With the January 2019 fare increases, the restrictions on travel back from London to stations south of Ely in the evening peak with an off-peak day return have been lifted, so passengers from Waterbeach and Cambridge North (and Cambridge) can return on any train.
At the same time, a "super-off-peak" fare with evening restrictions has been introduced from those stations, at a saving of about 3%. There do not seem to be any super-off-peak fares to London from the other Fen line stations, which did not have evening peak restrictions in 2018. We are seeking clarification, and will update this message when we have it.
