    Hi all

    My friend and I are travelling on off peak return ( any permitted route) from Accrington to Cardiff and coming back on a Sunday we plan on going via Preston and Birmingham on the outward journey but on the return journey I would love to get FGW hst Cardiff to Bristol Parkway and then do the XC hst from Bristol Parkway to Leeds im not familiar with the routeing guide so would an off peak return any route permitted allow me to make that route on the return journey?

    Many thanks in advance for any help and replies im most grateful and appreciate it

    Perfectly valid. Both of those FGW and XC routes tend to be very busy on a Sunday though.

    Thanks lexy boy so if I asked produced my tickets at booking office and asked for reservations ( provided there are seats still reservable ) can a booking office clerk issue the reservations if I inform him what services I will be catching not bothered about a seat Cardiff - Bristol Parkway. I do hope he/she doesn't insist that its not a valid route

    Yes, just show your tickets and state the train you'd like reservations for. It's a perfectly reasonable route so you shouldn't have any problems (if you do, try a different clerk/station).
