Is it OK to start an off-peak day return at an intermediate station when starting at the original station would have been in the peak.

Example: I want to go from Sowerby Bridge-Manchester Victoria-Bradford Interchange. So at Sowerby I buy a Bradford-Manchester Off Peak Day Return (which is valid from 0930). But I want to travel on the 0933 from Sowerby. Would that be valid?

In another example: Returning from Lincoln back to Leeds on an Off Peak Return (valid from 0930). The 0925 from Lincoln calls at Saxilby at 0934. Could I buy a single from Lincoln-Saxilby, and then start of the return leg of my Lincoln-Leeds ticket late from Saxilby?

Specifically answering your two questions:

I can see no reason to stop you boarding at SOW on a train timed to depart at a valid time

NOTES

Overnight Break of Journey -
restarting journey from an

I see no issue boarding at Saxilby at a valid time either.
