It’s easy to book a local departure; simply select the station you'd like to depart from when making your booking online. If your preferred station is not available to select from the dropdown menu in the checkout, get in touch with us and we can request a station for you.

Enjoy a relaxed journey in the spacious and quiet First Class coach of your regional train. We can add a First Class upgrade to your booking at any time before departure, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
