Many apologies if similar question has been asked before.

From Rugeley Trent Valley to Aberystwyth I can go either Rugeley TV - Birmingham NS - Aberystwyth OR Rugeley TV - Stafford - Wolverhampton - Aberystwyth

Are both of these classed as permitted routes? Thank you.

sonic2009's reply may need a little explanation.

Rugeley TV - Birmingham NS - Aberystwyth is a mapped Permitted Route using map CN.

It seems to me that Rugeley TV - Stafford - Wolverhampton - Aberystwyth is a Permitted Route because it's not more than 3 miles longer than the shortest route. It may actually be the shortest route with a regular passenger service.

Sorry i wasn't clear enough, I would agree that the shortest route for the majority of the day is via Stafford.

But the shortest route for the 1846 from Rugely TV would be :

Rugely TV - Walsall
Walsall - Wolverhampton
