Can I use my train ticket on another train?

What does a single advance ticket mean?

Can I take another train if mine is cancelled?
If the train you purchased a ticket for is canceled or delayed and you decide to travel anyway, special arrangements will be made to accommodate you on another train (although a seat cannot be guaranteed).
Can I take an earlier train with an off-peak ticket?
It depends on the type of ticket; flexible tickets can be used on earlier trains provided that the earlier train also respects the times of the purchased ticket. So, for example, if you want to travel on a super off-peak ticket, you can travel on an earlier train provided it is also authorized super off-peak travel.

Can I travel on another train with the same ticket if a booked train is late?
