Bristol Rovers away-Nov 22nd

Trying to get to as many new grounds as possible this season and noticed that there are London trains back from Bristol after 10pm from both Bristol Parkway (10:02) and Filton Abbey wood (10:09). Has anyone done the Memorial Stadium on the trains in the evening before? Will it be cutting it too fine?

I know we've plenty of train experts on here so any assistance is gratefully received.

    You'll never get the 21.50 so you'll have to get the 22.35 from Temple Meads.

    A solid 45 minutes walk from the station, I'd get a taxi.
  • Thank you mate. As long as getting back is no issue and I don't have to miss any of the game then all is good.

    Now the tricky part will be trying to convince my mates that Bristol on a Tuesday night is a good idea.....
  • Good spot - I'm up for this one
  • Our games in Bristol keep getting annoying schedules. Midweek this season, Boxing Day (City) last season, which is a shame as it would be a decent away game for many otherwise

    That train just connects to the 22:35 from Temple Meads anyway, so you have a choice of Filton (which should be walkable in the time available) or a taxi straight to Temple Meads

    Which if the connection goes sideways you are stuck, thus best to get a taxi.

    I think that if you took the Filton train to connect and it was late so that you missed the train to London, then the rail companies would be responsible, whereas if you took a taxi and it was stuck in traffic, then it's your problem not theirs

    But don't quote me on it!
  • Definitely going to this one

    That would be correct, but if you had two different train companies then you could get caught in the crossfire on who is responsible etc.

    Cheers for your help chaps, all booked up on the 16:30 from Paddington and the 10:35 home.

    Didn't even bother asking my pals so, if you see a sad looking chap nursing a four pack of premium strength lager and looking rather lonesome, feel free to spare him a couple of minutes of your time.

    The ticket for the match are all sold out by the way

    I don't think Rojo will be getting the train back mate.

    Good luck with that. He was best man at my wedding and still has more respect for the "jam" between his toes.
  • He was very appreciative when I bought him a drink.
  • Wtf is the jam btw?
  • How's rovers away got onto jam
  • I'm in - it will be 4 years since my last away win in November, which ironically was Bristol City in 2012.

    I can see no perfect symmetry under Slade. Although I do predict a draw

    Been there, done that. Actually quite good, though at the price they charge it should be.
  • Going down by car, staying over out in the sticks, coming back the next day, so if a couple of people want a lift down but aren't coming back, get in touch.

    That's not true. I hate Jam.
