    Quick question if anyone can help.

    On an annual season ticket with a VIA restriction, eg. Warwick to London Marylebone via High Wycombe (but not specifically Chiltern), can it be used on another service for the first part of the journey which isn’t destined for the High Wycombe route, albeit on the same track for that journey?

    The couple of examples I’m thinking are: - Warwick to Leamington Spa on a local service that terminates at LS.
    - Leamington to Banbury on XC, where the rest of the onward journey could technically then be made via HW?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can. The restriction is that you must use Permitted Routes that pass through the named station (or if there are none, Permitted Routes to and from that point as if it was two journeys). It doesn't matter as to which trains you use on those routes or where they end up.
