Can I purchase the tickets on the same day when I arrive at the Southampton central station to Heathrow airport, without purchasing advance on line, because I don't know exactly what time I should be departing. Is there any limit for luggage to carry on in the train? Thank you

I only use trainline for cheap tickets in advance of travel to airport for best prices. Deals are usually evening prices, anything around 8-10 pound Gatwick express return ( from Havant). Long night if your flight isn't till 6am but can curl up somewhere with a book or doze. Worth it though if your on a budget or a bargain fanatic like me! No restriction on luggage but if train is full you may end up standing with it by the doors, another plus for late evening travel when trains are half empty. You may find it cheaper to go up the evening before and get a hotel/b&b, most arrange or provide transport to airport but again do your research. Good luck.
