We picked this up on Twitter today: Stuart Curran @stuartcurran Guards on Southern trains no longer allowed to sell split tickets. Can still be purchased online though. A difference of £15 in price. @stuartcurran Did the staff actually tell you that they weren't allowed to sell them? @raileasy Yes - the guard on the train did. Assuming the chap was asking for specific splits, do the same rules apply on trains as at ticket offices?
