    recycled glass and rail freight

    Don't see why it should confuse anyone, unless you regularly move from county to county :-? In Birmingham we have a big plastic box for paper, and another big box for recycleables - bottles, jars, tin cans etc. Anything else goes in black binbags.

    I had, but point taken. However, in this case, there are no restrictions, so all is well. :D

    Thetrainline valid until

    In this case Anytime Day, Off Peak Day and Super Off Peak tickets are not available - only SOS or SVR as I stated above, the break of journey clauses of which are quoted above. Therefore, as far as this thread goes, it is strictly true! Surely it's a given that any advice given in a specific...
