Before contacting us please first check these FAQ’s

Bookings close early due to payments over the weekend not being processed until Monday.
Please do not ask us to reserve seats for you after bookings are closed or to indicate if there will be seats for you as we can not be sure how many other unbooked passengers will turn up.

For trains marked:
"SOLD OUT" there are no seats left.
"Sorry you have left it too late to pre-book" - There may be some seats left able to purchased at our ticket office on the day. However, we can not guarantee there will be a seat for you as even if we have spare seats we have no idea how many others will turn up without a booking. This is why bookings are recommended.
