Thank you, the group exercise was a worry. Never too sure whether you're contributing or dominating but thankfully it didn't kill my chances however close it may have been. Thanks again, much appreciated I'll take your advice with me.
hey considering you are a northern rail guard i just wondered if you could please check my explanation to not buying a ticket and see if it is ok?
The journey i travelled on the 4th of November 2011 was Cark to Preston. The station at Cark has no ticket machine or booth so I was unable to purchase a ticket. During my train journey the train was extremely busy and no conductor came so I could not purchase a ticket. The guard at Preston station informed me that I would be charged for the cost of the ticket via this letter. I realise now I should have simply asked to buy the ticket from the guard but I panicked and assumed I would be charged through this letter. I am happy to pay the cost of the single ticket from Cark to Preston as I usually always pay for my ticket. I apologize for any inconvience caused.
