    If you're returning on the Friday there should be some cheap advance tickets, If it's Saturday and there are no advance tickets then there are two options, the Crewe to Euston London Midland service but not too late as it will be very slow or a Cross Country to Brum and then the slow London Midland service which is only £3.95 with a railcard.
    The Virgin trains are preferable as it's usually only about an hour and a half to Euston. It takes that to get to most places on the South Coast!

    I checked on the National Rail planner and there are warnings about timetable disruption on the WCML, http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/servic...ns/184755.aspx

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:

    This bit is quite important:

    "Where Advance tickets have not yet gone on sale, customers can still buy Anytime, Off‐Peak and Super Off‐Peak tickets where they are available. If customers buy one of these and later discover a cheaper Advance ticket on sale for the same journey, they should book the Advance ticket and ask for a refund on the original ticket – there will be no admin fee."
