Hi all.

I'm a bit confused i will be travelling to Exeter Central on the 6th of August from Nottingham on the 06:37 am service.

However i booked it using the Trainline App and it said the train i will catch from Nottingham is to Leamington Spa? that's never been the case before it has always been the CrossCountry service from Platform 7A to Birmingham New Street.

So a little confused could anybody possibly tell me what the train will be labelled and the platform.

Thank you

P.S - I've contacted CrossCountry and had no reply.

It will be the Leamington Spa service. There's engineering works in the Banbury area, so the train is only going as far as Leamington and not onto Bournemouth as is usually the case.

It still calls at New Street as normal :)

The 0637 from Nottingham runs through to Bournemouth and is a voyager instead of a turbostar, but it's currently only running to leamington due to works. It used to depart from platform 6a, I don't know if It still does

Don't use thetrainline to book tickets in future. They charge booking fees and credit card fees. And they're never cheaper despite their misleading advertising claims.

Simply use a train operating company site or app. They can sell tickets for any journey too.

You beat me to it. I usually order mine via TPE or even Scotrail as neither site charges a booking or delivery fee and you just pay the actual cost of the ticket, no more.

Just being curious. That Nottingham-Bournemouth service, does it normally pass through Basingstoke? I spend too much of my life on that station and have never been aware of such a service. Are there any later direct services from Nottingham to Bournemouth (or Southampton) ? I occasionally find myself in Nottingham and would like to have a direct train home.

That is the only Nottingham to the South Coast service and it only runs southbound. Essentially the Voyager has to run into Birmingham New Street from Central Rivers depot (south of Burton) and by staffing it and starting back from Nottingham it serves as a useful morning peak train into Birmingham (arrives just before 08.00). Therefore freeing up a Class 170 Turbo to strengthen another service from Nottingham. The Voyager gets pretty busy into Birmingham.
