    Maybe this is obvious but can I buy a club 55 ticket at Stockport station for Newport (it's not an Arriva Wales station althoug it's on their route map)?

    Yes, you can buy it at any ticket office.

    I thought that would be the case but the "helpline" staff at ATW didn't know.
    --- old post above --- --- new post below ---
    I had no problems at all - I carried my passport (not because I was going via Newport but in case I was challenged about my age!).

    Good news - I saved almost £50 on the standard off-peak Stockport-Bristol return.

    Bad News - as I was travelling on business my employer pocketed the saving not me. Looked good on my expenses though.

    The Marches line to Newport for connections on through the Severn Tunnel to Bristol is a nice run, and interestingly, used to be one of the main ways of getting from Manchester/Liverpool to the west country before the powers that were in the 1970s decided all through traffic should go through Birmingham.

    Now that ATW's Club 55 promotion is available that way, it's even more attractive. The only downside is the connection on to Bristol is usually a crowded pacer!
