    I appreciate its early but I am trying to book Paddington to Exeter on or around the 23rd December. The GWR site says no tickets available yet Trainline shows full train times and availability. Anyone know why GWR site not active it does not make sense would appreciate any info?

    It's normally late October but don't hold your breath this year.

    Trainline will only be selling walk up flexible tickets which can be purchased on the day of travel at the same price so no point buying in advance.

    Advance tickets haven't been released yet.

    Sign up for a Ticket Alert from the Trainline:
    www.thetrainline.com/ticketalert

    Don't actually buy directly from the Trainline though - they charge completely avoidable booking fees.
