Update Note 1 June 2006:
Virgin Trains (Cross Country) is now also providing Megatrain routes. Stops include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Carlisle.
Megatrain has just expanded its routes. As well as Portsmouth and Southampton you can now also book tickets to London Waterloo travelling from Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Bournemouth, Salisbury, Weymouth and Yeovil.
Back to the original post......
Megatrain will be starting to do off-peak single fares between London and Portsmouth/Southampton from £1 single (plus 50p booking fee) from 14th November.
Unfortunately, these are the only routes mentioned at the moment, but hopefully they will add more in future.
Bookings must be made online or by phone. However, phone bookings are via an 0900 premium-rate 60p/min phoneline, so you're much better off booking online!
See the Megatrain website for more info. There's also an item about the offer on the BBC News website here.
