Hi, does someone know why there are only 2 train directions on the interrail map to cornwall/south england? One from london to bristol an one to st. Ives. There are more trains running, can I take them or why are they not on the map?

Thanks for your help.

The Interrail map is only a summary map, it has nowhere near the detail needed to show all lines that are there.

Being absent from the map does not mean a line is outside the pass validity.

In UK all national network lines are valid. Only Metros and heritage/tourist railways are outside the pass validity.

Here is a map with all routes in Britain, note it also has metros as thinner lines (such as London Underground and Manchester Metrolink) that are not valid with interrail.

For that area check out Great Western Railway website.

A handy one is also https://www.openrailwaymap.org/

It doesn’t give you an overview on which trains are running where and how frequent, but at least it gives you a complete overview of all possible options where you can get by train. :)
