I am trying to buy a ticket on a train from London to Portsmouth. ( I can't seem to see the thread I started confusing Plymouth with Portsmouth.) Anyway, another question for the gurus/locals. I am so confused by all the ways one can buy a train ticket. It seems there are multiple sources , eg mytrainticket, directrail, thetrainline, perhaps there are more. I take it there is one train and lots of outlets selling the tickets. Is that right?
So - is there one better than the other or are they all much of a muchness?
I can see the bus is much cheaper but I want to persevere and go by train as I think that would be a more pleasant experience. I am finding this very frustrating perhaps because of this concept of many suppliers of the same ticket??
Many thanks for your thoughts.
