    I have had a look at various terms and conditions but can't seem to find the answer to this. Does anybody know if it is permissible to buy a London to Dublin single (cost, £27) and terminate a journey at Crewe?

    In short, no. But if there's not any barriers at Crewe (or any other station the train stops at), I don't see how they could stop you!

    Because that's a London Midland only ticket and so you're extremely limited to just a couple of trains a day between London and Crewe.

    Yep, you have to remember that LMR and London Midland in this context refer to trains run by the TOC of that name - not the lines that are part of the London Midland Region (as most people over 35 may think of first, me included!)
