    I'm trying to get the booking engines to give me an advance ticket for a specific service (which I think exists), however it involves two via points. Do any online booking services let you include two via. stations?

    (For reference, I'm looking to do Cambridge to Edinburgh, via. King's Cross and Glasgow Central on a 1st Class Advance - this is possible later in the day, but it is trying to send me via Tottenham Hale when I look for this particular time of day putting only via GLC).

    Trainsplit.com's 'Advanced Options' gives you one via and up to 3 avoids.

    That's great. Showing the fare I want for £46.20. Definitely much cheaper than buying an advance from Euston + anytime single to King's Cross + peak tube fare.

    The other way to do this is using a Webtis booking engine. Specify one of the via points in the usual way, then click 'timetables only'. When you have your times, you then have the option to specify 'trains which stop at...', as your second point.

    That also worked and gave the same fare. Probably a better option for me as I have Tesco vouchers to burn at RSH.
