The sinario is this: Stopping train departs before fast train, both from station A. By getting fast train you can pick up stopping train later in its journey. What examples of this are there? Are there quite a few? This came about after I noticed tomorrow that the 7.03 Guildford to Waterloo via Cobham arrives into Surbtion at 7.40. That's perfectly normal, abet it doesn't aways arrive on time. What was interesting to me though was that if you got 7.07 fast Guildford to Waterloo, I worked out that if one changed at Woking for a semi fast service to Surbtion, you'd arrive in at 7.37. Thus unofficially at last, since its under the minimum official connection time of 6 minutes, you could change onto the stopping service later in its journey, despite the fact it left Guildford first. This is due to a strike timetable but I'm sure examples exist elsewhere that are more regular.
