Just totting up some 'anytime' fares on NRES for Crewe - Cardiff for future '67' leaping. I've found that splitting at Shrewsbury and Hereford works out cheaper, however as the WAG express does not stop at Hereford would that be an issue?
Crewe – Cardiff Central = £61.20
Crewe – Shrewsbury = £13
Shrewsbury – Hereford = £19.80
Hereford – Cardiff Central = £23.10
Those who know me will know that I'm PRIV so all of the above would only be a quarter, but I would still like to save £1.30!
