Wonder what the chances are of  Northern Trains putting on a seaside special train from Whitehaven to Blackpool for the final?

Bloomfield Road info

I doubt it will be a 50/50 ticket allocation, that little "golf stand" only has one set of turnstiles

Hope this idea becomes a reality as I have looked into going on a normal train and the return journey takes over 12 hours due to there being no connection at Barrow until Monday morning. Wouldn't mind a pint or three and don't know what the crack is with buses after the last fiasco.
