    Tomorrow, I am travelling from March to Central Birmingham, then Thursday I am doing Birmingham to Kidderminster returning to Stourbridge Town in the evening. On Friday I am doing Stourbridge Town - Kidderminster return departing early morning, finally on Saturday I am doing Stourbridge Town - Central Birmingham and then returning to March in the afternoon.

    Apart from buying individual tickets for all of these journeys, is there a cheaper way of doing all these? I have a 16-25 railcard.

    No this ticket will only cover you to break your journey at Stourbridge Junction. You will need a ticket from Stourbridge Junction to Stourbridge Town, which shouldn't break the bank at only 65p for a single with your 16-25.

    One can shave a pound of that by using Droitwich Spa as the destination - http://www.brfares.com/#faredetail?orig=DTW&dest=0418&rlc=YNG&tkt=SVR
    First departure off Stourbridge is 0637, which is probably rather early. Next trains are 0722 and 0752.

    Just bear in mind the £12 minimum fare with your railcard, so you will pay £4.20 for the SDR between Stourbridge Town & Kidderminster
