Booked this ticket at £7.25 yesterday: http://www.brfares.com/#faredetail?...ert=on&flow=1&multi=1&fare=0&rte=7779&tkt=SCV I do have 2 questions about the tickets Ive been issued with: - My 01/05/15 itinerary is as follows: 11.44 Liverpool South Parkway to Stafford 12.39 LM 12.56 Stafford to Milton Keynes Central 14.14 LM 15.13 Milton Keynes Central to East Croydon 17.00 SN 17.11 East Croydon to Hove 18.00 SN I have however only been issued with Mandatory Reservation Coupons for the first to trains as far as MKC. The route on this Advance ticket is SOUTHERN &LONMID So between MKC and Hove am I wondering about taking alternative trains so as to potentially cut down my overall journey time given I have no more Mandatory Reservations. (1) Would I be free to remain on the LM train that Im on already to MKC (arriving at 14.14 and departing at 14.15) as far as London Euston then travel, at my own expense, to Victoria (as the ticket does not have a Maltase + on it) to catch a SO service to Hove? If I MUST get off at MKC, I notice there is a frequent LM service to EUS so could I simply get the next train then do, again, as above? I do want to get this one right because I do not want any problems doing this either at the barriers in London and I also notice on LM services that run non-stop between MKC and EUS they often do another full ticket check on departure from MKC (often following a crew change). (2) Does anyone know if the LM services from Stafford to Euston often arrive at MKC a bit early, perhaps though recovery time in the schedule? I notice my service is booked to arrive at 14.14 but there is actually the previous SN service at 14.13 which I could get to say Clapham Junction for a Hove service. (an hour before my above itinerary). Im wondering if it might be perhaps possible to rush across the station and make this. If it is likely that the LM service from Stafford may arrive early has anyone any ideas of the platforms they normally use for my arriving and departing trains? Thanks so much for your help guys!
