My parents bought a Super Off Peak Return [SSR] from Bradford Stations to Syon Lane for travel next Sunday. To keep the number of changes to a minimum they planned to use the Grand Central service from Bradford to London but needed a bit more flexibility for the return (and need to be back before that last GC train gets in to Bradford). However, the lady at the ticket office has told them that they can only travel via Leeds and not use the GC service (although they can get on it at Doncaster if they want to make additional changes!). Apparently, a SSR from Bradford Stations to London is valid on any off-peak train but they were advised that the through ticket is not. Is that correct? If so presumably they won't be able to catch any of the 2 earlier GC returns either.
