How far out can you buy conventional rail tickets??

I seem to remember that some companies, like East Coast, will send you an email on the day that the tickets are released?

It does seem odd doesn't it! Must just be the way their ticketing system is set up.

Bloody hell! I can buy a flight to Azerbaijan for 2014 but not a 60 mile domestic train fare 4 1/2 months hence!!

Sounds about right, 3 months prior to travel - iirc I had to wait until February last year to buy tickets to go to Birmingham in May.

Trying to get 4 of us from Southampton or Winchester to London in mid May but apparently you can't buy tickets before 'a couple of months out'.

Is that really so??
