Re rail travel, though, it USED to be a damn sight easier, with SuperSaver, Saver and Open fares - Apex tickets were fewer - the business model was based more on the walkup fare model. It's only been after deregulation that some TOCs went down the airline-style route.

"Permitted routes" are also confusing for the passenger - esp the casual passenger. Back when it was all BR, and for a while afterwards, you had all tickets valid "via any reasonable route".
