Ok, here's what should be a fairly simple question.

Let's say I'm travelling from Aberdour (a station on the Fife Circle) to Edinburgh Waverley (no intro required)

Now - Dalmeny, South Gyle, Haymarket and Waverley are all part of the Edinburgh Group on the routing guide. This means, for anyone who isn't already aware, that doubling back is permitted to reach a destination within this group.

What's to stop me doing the following:
Purchasing an Aberdour - Dalmeny CDR

Aberdour - Inverkeithing
*break journey*
Inverkeithing - Waverley (next stop Haymarket)
*break journey*
Waverley - Aberdour (all stops)

No only for interchange purposes - not when one of the group is the origin or destination .

GROUP STATIONS
Some stations are grouped together to improve interchange between trains
by offering customers access to a wider choice of train services and station
facilities. A customer may travel via any station in such a group, including
doubling back, provided that the group is on one of the permitted routes
between their origin and destination stations. This extended availability is for
interchange purposes only and does not apply where the origin or destination
stations are part of a group.
