British Trains, three questions

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a train trip form London to Edinburgh this fall.
We are going to be leaving from Kings Cross, but I have three questions, never having used British trains before.
1.) We are seniors...over 65...living in the USA. Can we get senior rail discount cards, or are they only for British people?
2.) On this trip to Edinburgh, we would like to stop in York for two or three hours, for a quick look-see, maybe lunch. Do we buy a ticket to Edinburgh and get off one train and back on a later train in York or do we have to buy two separate tickets, one to York from Kings Cross and the other from York to Edinburgh
3.) What are the main differences between standard class (not sure what it is called) and FIRST class? Better seats, free tea or coffee, etc????
Thanks,
