Placeholder: useful train travelling links that help me from time to time:
http://www.brtimes.com/ - all train times & nerdy info.
http://www.brfares.com/ - all train fares & nerdy info.
http://data.atoc.org/routeing-guide - Big map of what we’re allowed to do with our tickets.
http://www.trainscanbecheaper.info/ - uses routeing guide to get technically cheapest fare from A to B. Apparently going via Belfast to Edinburgh is the cheapest way from Reading, but incredulous - *who* would do that?
http://splitticketing.com - does something more clever and combines the ATOC information with the train time information and gives you viable cheapest routes by split-ticketing
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/cdn/static/cms/documents/london-rail-and-tube-services-map.pdf - Because I *always* end up googling this - the big London Connections map (basically the Oyster map plus a few bits like Heathrow Express).
