Have just logged on to try and grab tickets to Padstow (Bodmin Parkway)from Paddington for November, as they are only bookable from today.
Sadly, there don't seem to be ANY options to book on a specified train time and date and get a vastly reduced price ticket For myself and DP to go down (for my 40th) is going to be £200 - eek. I could fly somewhere hot for that !
I've tried First Great Western, Raileasy, The Trainline and QJump. Are there any other options for getting cheap tickets ?
The only other thing we could do is travel with friends on a Groupsave ticket - that would be half the price, but our friends want to go for the weekend and we wanted to stay longer ...
Ah - I'm coming from North of London, so rounded up - those are the same prices I've seen
You used to be able to get dirt cheap advance fares if you booked a few weeks in advance - I've gone from Paddington to Cardiff for £22 one way several times and once got an advance First Class ticket for £30 - was hoping for a similar deal on this route
