Not really, they're in the same Bristol and it's a next-stop journey. It'd only be a funny combination if there were 2 Bristol's or if they were on sepeate lines (e.g. Pontefract Baghill-Monkhill). :P ;)

Bridgnorth - Bridgeport (valid as you can get through SVR Bridgnorth-National Rail tickets from National Rail ticket offices, just ask for 'Bridgnorth')
