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.
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
