    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    Oh, I think you're wrongly assuming the via Woking option isn't permitted. SWR will sell me this same ticket with the same price if I explicitly ask it to be via Woking. National Rail's site tells me a ticket bought for the 6:25 train can also be used on the 6:33 via Woking with 2 changes route...

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    Been there. I'm a software developer that makes a living out of transforming law/contracts into systems where people don't have to know them (more recently tax, payroll - but used to launch a lot of small services that shared these characteristics). I recognise the SNAFU from these kind of...

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    I noticed the problem seems to be with the return. If you ask for an open return, national rail enquiries gives you the right results (with the very useful feature of "ticket also valid on").

This saves me half an hour per day, which gets spent with my kids, so that's of great value to me. I'm very...

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    I don't think so, I've found this kind of limitations before (from getting citymapper to show SDC-WBY as an option for my commute to SWR actually not showing a return trip on this route as possible during the December strike, at least at my normal return time). I suspect the calculation engine...

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    That's great, so I misunderstood the instructions on page F4: FINDING APPROPRIATE ROUTEING POINTS Any routeing point can be used, provided it does not (...): cause doubling back (passing through the same station twice between origin and destination); make the journey double back through the...

    West Byfleet (WBY) to Clapham Junction (CLJ)

    Hi, First time posting here, as this was the only place I could find with decent information on routeing (great job on that). My main question is whether West Byfleet to Clapham Junction via Woking is a permitted route for my usual commute ticket from West Byfleet to Shoreditch High Street not...
