    I was just wondering once you've returned the forms to confirm you are a student and then the railcard forms etc how long will it take for the railcard to arrive as I will pretty much need the card as soon as possible?

    if you are that urgent for a railcard - u are better off buying it at the railway station. they'll issue it straight away.

    ps thought about opening ur student account with natwest

    If you are like me and are doing a train trip pretty soon - before the railcard arrives - you are probably better off forking the full price for the ticket and getting the railcard free afterwards than paying for a reduced ticket and a railcard at the same time, unless the full price ticket is more than £60.

    ^^^ i suppose ur wuth natwest then, tbh i dont give too much of a **** regarding railcard. i rarely travel by train. the last time i went on a train was not the june gone; but the june previous. if i do wanna travel by train, what i normally do is buy the ticket online way in advance at the reduced fair. and then buy the young person railcard the day b4 i'm meant to travel from a local outlet. in manchester, i dont even have to go to the train station to get one . . they sell em at the local precint which is about a stone's throw away from the university
