This "sort of" says you can.
Where and when can I use my Railcard?

I wouldnt chalk it up to experience personally; as you’ve been forced into paying a good £20 extra.Hmm. Guess I'll have to chalk it up to experience. I did think that it could be treated as a 16-25 as some systems haven't updated but it has been some months now.
Seems to be correct. BRFares.com specifically shows "no fares available" if you search for the FOSS rover with a 26-30 railcard.I've just bought a Freedom of Severn & Solent 3 in 7 at Basingstoke and was told my 26-30 railcard couldn't be used on it. (Other tickets I bought I was able to add my railcard to no problem.)
Is this true?
