Cheap train tickets 11:56 - Jul 15 with 1646 viewsMrGrieves

Wonder if one of you with a much better knowledge of cheap train tickets can help?

I'm planning on going to the Southampton game on 27/09 and I thought that the cheap advance tickets went on sale 12 weeks ahead. They don't seem to be available though - anyone know why not?

I tend to use the trainline website. Where are you travelling from?

South west trains have their own website and it might have cheaper tickets on there.

12 weeks is the earliest the cheap tickets are (can be) released.

Some lines put them up stright away others seem to do this somewhat at random.

National Rail Enquiries (I always use this) is not showing any 'Advance' tickets yet so it is safe to assume they've not been released.

EDIT: And here is the reason:

'It is not yet known how South West Trains services will be affected by engineering work from Saturday 27 to Friday 3 October 2014. Please check back nearer the time of travel.'

Cheap tickets for that one not on sale yet, checked this yesterday. At the moment they're up to and including September 13.

Just been back on National Rail Enquiries and they are still only showing the expensive 'Off-Peak' fares to Southampton from Waterloo. No apparent sign of the cheaper 'Advance' tickets. Does anyone know wtf is going on?

Cheap fares are available from Victoria but I'm not spending 2.5 hours on a train to Southampton.

You're missing out. Eight of us going for a fiver each way each, and it's a great laugh.

The lack of advance tickets on the main route that day is odd. Wondering if there's some engineering pencilled in but couldn't see any.
