Thanks for the advice. I was thinking of changing at MK to Southern Rail>>>Shepherds Bush and Central Line. The problem for us further north is that there are fewer trains in the evening heading north west so its an 1821 from Watford to catch the 1929 out of MK to our northern outposts.

I asked Virgin what service they were offering during the works. They said there would be some kind at 4 hours plus with a few changes, and no APEX ticket option so nearly 3 times my usual cost :roll:

MK, I'm only 75 minutes further up the line from you.

Thanks for the advice: I can get down early enough but likely to have to leave before the end to catch the Inter City from MK Central at 7pm. Connecting train leaves Watford Junction at 1821hrs. How much time do you think I should allow? Leave HW about 4.30pm? Routeplanner says 74 minutes, is this accurate?

Yeah seems to give you plenty of time mate....1hr 50mins......No 7.29 from MK for you then..

If their saying 74mins... I would stick with that,usually spot on with their timings..
seems pretty good..
Is that coming back sameway...

I'm just a member now,sometimes get tickets with or near mates...but a bit low down
(East side) so sometimes get one upstairs.
But Night Games or if I want a quick getaway get something in the West....and use Hackney Wick
....Highbury...Euston...25/30 mins or so..But that line runs on to Willesden Junc...bout 50mins
15/ or so to Harrow,same to Watford......works out about the same I spose.

Spoilt for choice with all our super transport links....... :lol:

Might not be coming down for first couple....usually up in Scotland end of Aug,start of Sept
Weather dependant tho..
