Tried trainline. DH needs to leave from Liverpool Street for Ipswich Monday morning. But you have to go to Euston, Kings Cross or Paddington first so that you can pick up your ticket

Is it possible to buy a ticket online or by phone so he doesn't have to visit another station first!?

apparently the 'fast track' ticket machines are only at certain stations - very useful...

We have a local "travel interchange" here - I think it's possible to buy national tickets there - where are you? Do you not have anywhere local (eg travel agent) where he could turn up and buy one tomorrow?

Thanks we tried national rail equiries but you have to pick the tickets up from a different station at a fast track ticket machine. It is very annoying
