This may be a stupid question but how can I found out how busy the different rush our services from Farnborough Main to Waterloo are? I might be commuting from there in the not to distant future and it'd be handy to know which services I have a chance of getting to the wheelchair space on

Depends what time of day you're travelling. If you book wheelchair assistance in advance the guard should ensure that you get a space on the train.

Farnborough - Waterloo is a very busy route

The worst offenders are the 06:46, 07:16 and 07:28 from what I've heard.

I would hang around at during the rush hour at some point just to see what it's like for yourself though, if you get the chance.

Looks like I might have to spend a couple of days doing recon before I move then.

Sometimes despite the guard's best efforts there's nowhere for people to go to get out of the way without getting off the train and understandably people are very reluctant to do that. I often have to miss trains despite booking assistance for that reason. It's happened to me twice in the last month at Euston

Decide to delete after thinking the post through a little more thoroughly.....
