I used to take my (full-size) bike on the train from Cambridge to Melbourn in the mornings - a careful reading of the rules was required to prove that this was permitted! We did get busted one morning by a whole gang of inspectors, and subsequently all complained to the railway company and got an apology. So, I suggest that you print out the bit of website that makes it clear and put it in the pocket of your cycle-bag - it may come in handy.

I think you're right. I printed out the Olympic policies last night, but after my conversation with Southern this morning (see above) I've also printed out their standard cycling policy. The guy on the phone thought that it was a recent change to allow folded bikes on rush hour trains, but I told him that it's been that way for several years; that's why Bromptons are so popular in London!
