    Hello

    A friends problem but I'm struggling due to cross country prices!

    1 person, no railcard, out Friday 24 July back 27 July. Times flexible and indeed route flexible.

    Not madly keen on a tight connection at eg Birmingham with two separate advances for obvious reasons.

    Thanks in advance - it is apprecited

    As long as you allow the minimum connection time at Birmingham New Street (12 minutes) you will be able to take the next XC service to complete your journey.

    Thanks for the responses. Yes, tried train split, which takes the trip through Birmingham (hence my wondering about a different route).

    On the two tickets - if she gets two separate advances she can 'miss' the booked train with impunity, ainsworth? Thanks again

    As long as you allow the minimum connection time at any stations where you change train you'll be allowed to take the next appropriate service to complete your journey. It isn't your fault if your first train is delayed causing you to miss your second train! Obviously if she missed the train at Carlise (late bus or heavy traffic getting to the station for instance) then both tickets are useless but this would be her own fault rather than the railways.
