Ed,

To add to what Marj just wrote about the 1894 fares.  You could then go here

Universal Currency Converter
http://www.xe.net/ucc/

But it might be more fun to go these sites

Inflation Calculator
http://www.westegg.com/inflation/
Eh.Net How Much is That?
http://eh.net/hmit/
http://eh.net/hmit/exchangerates/pound.php

Using the resources of these pages should give you a pretty close estimate.

Sue
