Is national rail 16-25 card same as Trainline?

Say for example I have a Trainline one, can I use that at train stations to buy tickets?
yes if you ordered one from trainline, its the same as doing it from national rail - if that makes sense! :biggrin:

Trainline charge a booking fee when you buy tickets. You can buy the same tickets from the train operating companies without the booking fee, either online or at a station.

Thank you :smile:
I can go into the station and buy a ticket using my Trainline railcard right?

You shouldn't need to produce your railcard when you buy the ticket. But you absolutely must be able to show the railcard while you're travelling.

If I buy a 16-25 Railcard with Trainline, can I use it with tickets bought elsewhere?

Yes. Although your Railcard will live in your Trainline App, it can still be used with tickets bought elsewhere.
