  1. For those non drivers exiled in Manchester. Rail Easy internet booking seems to be cheapest option for senior railcard holders like myself there are several trains leaving Piccadilly with one change @£ 32.0-ish with return trains from 1845 hours taxi or bus from Slough station to Forest Green stadium. Best if travel by taxi to book your return . Quite an isolated place .Bring your own Wrights Pies. Bill.
