    Edmondson tickets at preserved railways?

    I have :) But on a pass, and it's mostly Day Rover holders otherwise.

    Edmondson tickets at preserved railways?

    According to the current KWVR magazine, Damems still has an NCR21, but as a TTI I've never seen a ticket issued on it. There's a print-your-own-ticket NCR21 in the waiting room at Keighley but I don't think that's quite what waa meant :)

    Help Regarding Unpaid Penalty Fare

    A bit off topic, but that refers to "disruption" - does GC cancelling its train come under that heading?

    Random termination points

    The route was double track right through to East Grinstead and had as many trains north of HK as Eridge-Hailsham, so there was no obvious plan to close t it - indeed, the SR proposed to electrify through to South Croydon via Oxted in their "final fling" postwar scheme (possible prewar too). As...

    Trivia: Strike-Induced Timetable Trivia

    Presumably service recovery after the late start - it formed the 0845 back.

    Rack railway engagement

    I would have thought the principal wear is on the face of the cogwheel where it engages with the rack, so roughly perpendicular to the rail.

    Potential effect of RMT strikes on Eurostar services

    Which is open 12 hours on strike days, so affecting evening trains.

    Misused Freedom pass in Tube, recieved a letter from TFL

    Your friend will hear from them when they follow this up, which could be a few weeks. If they contact you at all (and they may not do so) it will be after that.

    Longest unchanging departure slot in the hour?

    No, it must have been a couple of years later - see below. Early SR days at a guess! Became a Salisbury terminator (33+8TC). The Brighton-Plymouth was retimed, as Taunton said causing much annoyance (not to mention resentment from ex-SR people). It was withdrawn as a daily service after a...

    Historic service patterns in the Brighton Main Line

    Took some finding again, but the 10.23SX Pompey due 12.40 , empty to Streatham Hill, is shown as C.B.C. Intriguing BTW is the use of a solo 4CEP on the overnight Gatwicks - presumably easier to do tickets than a BIL/HAL?

    Certainly included in First for a year or two.

    Sleepers in France

    There are (were?) private compartments, but only bookable via SNCF. And not cheap for a solo traveller.

    Penalty fare given to family

    No, they are being treated as people without tickets. Once the penalty fare is paid, that is an end to it.

    Help Regarding Unpaid Penalty Fare

    It seems fairly standard LNER practice to spread the load over more than one train, certainly at busier times of day.
