Could Virgin help, operator of trains from Euston to Wigan?
But these "bargain" Virgin fares are exactly the same as everybody else's. Of course, we still do not know whether a Saver is valid on the oft-hidden 0552 path; oft hidden on journey planners but the only option for fbb. And fbb cannot buy a ticket in advance with reservations included because the journey fbb wants does not officially exist.
The 0930 from Euston runs to Glasgow and is likely to be packed. Will fbb find a seat?
The problem, as usual, is that some journey planners make assumptions about interchange times. Crossing London is particularly fraught with such assumptions and fbb can only assume that the National Rail deep throat confuser considers 44 minutes to be too risky, despite prophesying a ten minute Underground ride.
That's why fbb doesn't like journey planners.
Of course, if Easter weekend engineering work were to overrun ...
Some lines between London Waterloo and Clapham Junction, also the lines between Clapham Junction and Barnes will be closed all weekend (Friday to Monday) for bridge works. Part of London Waterloo station will also be closed and many trains will leave London Waterloo from different platforms to normal - please check displays at station.
Due to the number of alterations to the train and bus services this weekend, it is not practical to display special timetables for all of the routes and stations affected.
Please use an on-line Journey Planner or the Print your own Timetable or Buy Tickets features from this website to check your journey details.
The truth is out there and will be revealed tomorrow.
P.S. This happened on Bank Holiday Monday.
