FGW train upgrades to Cornwall

Since I can work from home one day a week and my family are based in Cornwall, I have the following cunning travel plan:

80.60GBP for a super offpeak return ticket for travelling Saturday morning http://traintimes.org.uk/pad/bod

Saturday mornings, unlike Friday evenings should not suffer from over crowding.

Since it's a Saturday too and for that length of journey I'll upgrade to First class for 20GBP with a Weekend First upgrade. Depending on the train manager, that might include tea & coffee.

Incidentally Weekend First upgrades typically also apply to public holidays!

Then I plan to return on the last London train from Bodmin on Monday evening (there is travel restrictions typically in the morning).

I have other tips related to this fantastic 4hr FGW train journey home:
