    Advanced ticket for TPE Planned Cancelled Train from Edinburgh

    Since the good folk of TPE have cancelled a few trains from Edinburgh to Liverpool after New Year, what is the position if you already have an advance ticket on one of them to Manchester? Mr Goodwin wrote some form of apology but unsurprisingly failed to cover what people should actually do. I...

    Advance Ticket Railcard type change

    I have two sets of Virgin advance tickets linked to a senior railcard which is due for renewal before travel. I realised that I now qualify for a disabled railcard so have bought one. Will this be allowed on the day if I show both cards? Is it possible to get the ticket endorsed in some way...

    Furness Vale to Dundee at Easter

    Nice simple journey you would think but this highlights how awful the system can be. My daughter is travelling to Dundee on Friday 19th April returning Sunday 21st April. The Off Peak Return Fares have a Via Lancaster (77.80) and Any permitted (85.55) options. The NR planner does indeed do this...

    Group save on Northern??

    I was just looking at the cost for 5 Adults day return at 1600 from Furness Vale to Manchester Piccadilly on National Rail Planner. The planner seems to apply group save even though as far as I know this is not available, cost £26.50. Is a group save indeed available? What would the position be...

    Journey Planner Sheffield Truro Saturday 6th Jan

    My daughter has an advance ticket booked for this journey on Cross Country Sheffield 0854, Exeter 1241 then GWR Exeter 1253 Truro 1525 on a train. This is still being offered on the booking engines despite there being Engineering works and a bus between Exeter and Plymouth. I only found this out...

    My train has vanished from the online timetable but still exists

    The 1614 (Mon-Fri) Northern from Sheffield to Manchester has disappeared from all online searches. It was there earlier in the week but has now gone. RTT still had it active. At Sheffield it wasn't shown on the departure board but the helpful staff confirmed it was still going to depart. I can...

    Silly Off Peak Restrictions

    I was looking at a journey from Chinley to Derby. A Off Peak day return with railcard is £13.45. However it has crazy restrictions not before 0930 or between 1530-1815 both ways. The first train allowed from Chinley is 1123 (0923 is ruled out) and the planners seem to apply the time back to...

    Rules for feeder services to off peak trains

    My weekly commute to London is Furness Vale, Stockport, London. I often catch the first off peak train to London, 0943 from Stockport. This means catching the 0846 from FNV and waiting 20 minutes extra at SPT. Being exceedingly busy it is advised to have a reservation. Despite having bought this...

    Can't use cheaper/slower fare screen with Senior Railcard

    For the past couple of years I have used the WTWC booking for my journeys to London. I often use the cheaper fares/slower journeys link to reserve a seat on the first off peak journey. Today when I try and do this I just get an N/A result. This seems to be the same for any journey in the country...

    Ticket printed seat number correctly but for the wrong train

    I printed a ticket booked through VTWC yesterday. The outbound journey is correct, however my seat reservation for Thursday shows the correct seat as per the booking but the train time for my outbound journey. Is this a known type of issue and is there possibly a real problem with my reservation...
