I seem to recall that the Tories voted for the Iraq War too. I also seem to recall that the Tories wanted to invade Syria, but were defeated by the opposition. And then weren't the Tories in power when we waged war on Libya? And weren't the Tories in power when the Gulf War in 1991 started? Anyway, back to the main point - Well done SWR!
Can you book in advance?

Kids travel free this half term age 5-15 with a fare paying adult on Southwest train
Two children age 5-15 travel free for one adult pa
Book early for disappointment on the day. Use the bike most of the time to commute into London, a week ago I decided to catch the train for three stops to Wimbledon, first train cancelled with no explanation, second late. Would have been quicker to cycle .Disgraceful and woeful train network that shows the pitfalls of privatisatisation.

Free First Class Upgrade (if Standard Class is Full) for Expectant Mums - South Western Railway
Just stumbled across this and thought it was a great idea... Making journeys easier for expectant mums. If you’re an expectant mother and hold a Weekly, Monthly or longer Season … Read more
Missing a trick - I would have thought they could raise a few extra quid by just offering this irrespective of all 2nd class seats being taken for a small token payment, instead of this almost pointless "upgrade scheme" that probably benefits very few expectant mums "lucky" enough to be travelling on a busy commuter route in rush hour.
In Belgium pregnant women get free upgrades to 1st on any train, empty or full.
I'd respect this offering if it didn't include the "if all standard seats full" bit. As it stands it's just a PR stunt...women in their 3rd trimester who've jumped through all the application hoops then checked all the standard carriages (without someone offering them a seat) may sit in first class...very kind
No this is a myth - although the driver can declassify first class (effectively making it 2nd class) on some busy trains if they choose to but this will be announced.
Isn't there a rule that ANYBODY can sit in 1st class if there are no seats left in 2nd class? If a seat becomes available you need to go back through.

South Western Railway January Advance Ticket Sale£8
Advance ticket sale for South Western Railways until 8 March. London -> Weymouth for £10, London -> Exeter for £12 or London -> New Forest £8.
Agreed. Anyone who voluntarily travels on SW trains needs their head examined. As a long suffering 'customer' I can first hand testify to the contempt they have for the traveler. Overpriced, late, strike-ridden, they are a model of incompetence. They even distributed a customer survey a couple of weeks ago ( 0 to all questions). The question they should have asked is, "do you think the franchise should be withdrawn from SW trains" My memory of British Rail is somewhat hazy but they could not be worse than the current group of half-wits.
Thanks OP I was a bit sceptical but you’re right they are much lower than usual! Grabbed returns to Portsmouth and Bournemouth 👏
Thanks. Great offer. Got return tickets from London Waterloo to Portsmouth - £4.45 each way.
What an absurd notion. We have a government with a Secretary of State for Transport, Failing Grayling, who's abrogated all responsibility for the railways and just tries to pretend all the rail problems across the country are someone else's fault. And the East Coast Main Line's littered with a series of failed private operators who gave up the franchise. If Corbyn gets in we'll see some sanity return, with a truly national railway system for the first time since the last one was wrecked, and we'll also, I hope, see an end to the system which requires you to book tickets 12 weeks in advance to get an affordable fare. Our railways are the laughing stock of Europe, if not the world.
No problem, I was also looking at this particular journey but for 1! Saw a single from Somerset to Waterloo for £11

The wearing uniform outside of active duty is a relic from The Troubles. As someone references it’s all risk based. You wouldn’t do it in Baghdad but Andover is fine. Good gesture for our Armed Forces. Although individuals with a MoD 90 should just get free travel in my opinion
Its been cancelled, from the South Western Railway website; RMT
industrial action planned for this date has been cancelled. We plan to
run a full service on this day subject to engineering works.
In Andover I see people in uniform in our Asda, Sainsbury's, Waitrose & Tesco all the time. The British Army HQ is west of the town at Marlborough Lines and I'm sure they are not on duty or en-route to a military base when shopping for their bacon or Sauvignon Blanc (lol)
They're on strike on Saturday 10th, so be careful when they are running.

Still a deal but be warned, I'm guessing the amount of disuption/'improvements'? over the summer to keep the lovely economy afloat during the mon-friday days might have you pulling your hair out £1 or no £1. Feel free to post after the summer. I strongly suggest you check both your dates of travel here http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/service_disruptions/currentAndFuture.aspx?TravelDate=&TOC= for example 25-27th (Sat-Mon) August No trains to / from London Euston from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 August
if the trains actually worked, this would be a great deal. could you imagine being stuck on a train for 3 hours with no aircon in this heat. it will happen...
Ummmm check your facts before making sweeping statements - only free if they are under 11 and they may need a kids 5-10 zip oyster card for some national rail journeys in London to travel free. Link below explains fully - https://tfl.gov.uk/fares-and-payments/travel-for-under-18s/travelling-with-children
Great price if you live in the area.

This is almost okay if you are lucky enough to live near one of the very few eligible stations - mostly end of line terminus stations. It's an unimaginative and lazy resurrection of the Stagecoach/SWT Mega Train (or whatever it was called) deal. It's a terrible shame that this network still won't provide a sensibly priced advance ticket purchase system for people who travel occasionally and can't afford the obscene rip off fares.
price just shot up by £4 but booked for £30 return still not bad have some heat
