Once our car hire was finalized we needed to sort out our train travel. My first port of call was a highly recommended website called seat61. It was created by a British Rail employee who loved to travel by train so much he decided to share his wealth of experience & knowledge. Keeping the website up-to-date is now his full-time occupation.
The website helped clarify a lot of issues regarding ticketing, seating, sleeper carriages and the mind-numbing vagaries of international rail websites.
You’ve got a love it when someone makes your job infinitely easier!
