Save the planet, one journey at a time.

Let’s get our climate back on track.

I came by train is a collective movement to help fight climate change. Because switching to train is one of the single best things you can do to lower your CO2 emissions.

So, it’s time to do this together. To take just one journey by train this year instead of flying or driving. It’s time to say it loud, and say it proud.
I came by train.

Together, we’re looking forward to Better Days.

Grab a Railcard

Get 1/3 off travel** when you use a Railcard, which means the more you travel the more you save.

Split your tickets

Automatically splitting your journey into multiple cheaper tickets. In a nutshell, you stay on the exact same train, but it just costs you less.
