Season ticket between Newport and Gloucester. VERY OCCASIONALLY I got via Bristol (usually only if there is a problem with line) because it takes longer/too much hassle to change. But I understand it is a valid route. The other day I had some work in Bristol. Travelled Newport-Glos as normal then got a lift there (to bristol) but rather than travel back to Gloucester, I got lift to Bristol Parkway and got on train back to newport from there. Ticket barrier at Parkway let me through, didnt see guard on train. Was it OK what I did?
