i am not sure if breaking a journey is allowed on the railways, for example if you stop at an intermediary station and then re-join to complete your journey?
could someone please help if you know
Yes, that's allowed. It doesn't apply however to the Supersaver tickets. These tickets can only be purchased for a specific date and specific time. Therefore you can't break your trip along the way.
I thought it might be worth clarifying that if you break your journey, you have to resume and complete it the same day.
If you took an overnight break, you would need a separate ticket for the second day.
I just wanted to pointed out that all of the above is correct, but there are rare exceptions. Sometimes single way tickets are valid for a limited time frame, usually 2 hours. You can still break your trip, but the ticket will in any case expire in 2 hours. This could be the case with a ticket from Zürich to Winterthur, for example. This limitation is printed on the ticket. For this and more train travel details, please see www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/practical/howtotra vel.
