A way of searching just GWR trains?

Hi,

I am trying to find a way of searching for journeys only using GWR trains. So far all websites I have used bring up other train providers on the journeys I have selected. I could do many multiple searches and note down the GWR trains (takes a long time!) but was wondering is there a website that will allow to filter so as to only show them?

Thanks

It's not perfect, but... Search on something like the VTEC site. Then once you get the results back, click on 'select a route', on the left-hand panel. You should then have an option to filter by "Only valid on booked Great Western Railway services and required connecting Great Western Railway services."

If you only need to search itineraries and not buy tickets, use www.fastjp.com
Fill in your journey details, then under "Transport Operators" click "add operator restriction", select "Only use selected operators" from the list that appears and tick "First Great Western" (it's still called that in the data feeds that the site uses!). See the attached screenshot.

Thank you both for your replies, that helps a lot. I don't need to buy tickets just see which trains I am able to get with my pass.

It can offer some interesting options - certainly wants to give me value for my £10 Northern ticket...

0657 Liverpool Lime Street
departs 4 changes — 10 hr 24 min arrives
Seaham 1721
changing at Leyland, Poulton-Le-Fylde, Dalton & Carlisle
or
0657 Liverpool Lime Street
departs 7 changes — 13 hr 20 min arrives
Hartlepool 2017
changing at Preston, Silverdale, Kents Bank, Ulverston, Roose, Carlisle & Newcastle

but it won't let me go to Middlesbrough - perhaps that's some sophisticated AI telling me that I shouldn't!

Not a journey planner but I've added an operator filter to my timetable pages if it helps (saves trawling through PDFs to see where you can go...!)
