    I am going to Cosford air show next month, as it is now an "Advance Ticket Only" event I need to purchase combined Rail and Entry tickets, which are only available at ticket offices, does anyone know when these will be on sale? my friends have tried at a couple of stations over the last few days without success, also will the normal railcard discount be available on the "Rail Fare" part of the ticket? Thanks.

    They are always available from the ATW or LM conductors.

    According to the air show website they are only available from ticket offices,(but it doesn't say when!), as the show is advance ticket only this year, I am assuming they won't be available "on the day"

    According to http://www.air-shows.org.uk/2015/04/airshow-news-get-on-board-for-raf-cosford-air-show/ they are available now.

    Two years ago, it was a real struggle to get my local station to sell me a combined ticket (it was FCC at the time), but I persevered - by selecting the travel date first, then searching for Cosford it popped up as an option on the ticket seller's PC.

    Last year, it didn't work at all - couldn't even buy one from Birmingham International on the day.

    Are these available from any station? EMT twitter have no idea that they exist so I will probably make a trip down to Tamworth to save the hassle.

    Is L030 the correct code for it?

    I did have a quick look yesterday and couldn't find any information on either Knowledgebase or Avantix.

    It could just be my inability to search properly, though - I spent a good five minutes hunting for my house keys the other day before I realised I was carrying them...

    My friend managed to get our tickets today from Snow Hill, it did take the clerk a while to find the tickets on the system though.
