    BR1B/BR1 railway keys

    Just like carriage keys, BR1 keys are not exclusive to the national railway as BR consistently sold off rolling stock to preservation societies and individuals.

    Cycle Panniers

    Have you looked at the Decathlon website? They have a range of panniers at prices that wont break the bank. I can’t vouch for them personally but the reviews seem quite good and I have purchased kayaking equipment from them that was excellent quality.

    Avanti West Coast gave me a £142.10 fine.

    I wonder how the scenario would have ended if the customer produced an all line rover. Obviously, that would have covered the whole journey from Crewe to London and so what could (would) the TM have done?

    Trivia - Longest journey between platforms (without using the footbridge)

If you were to preclude that route for a...

    Buying Interrail from stations on the continent

    That’s interesting because I’m intending to purchase a single country pass some time next year and was planning to order direct. Do you happen to know how much they charge in postage?

    Buying Interrail from stations on the continent

    Isn’t it easiest just to purchase direct from interrail.eu ? They offer mobile passes as an option but issue paper passes as well. Just choose at checkout.

    ScotRail Industrial Relations issues (including conductor strike action)

    I think you will find that this a public forum, and people from all political persuasions are allowed to comment.

    Revenue Inspectors - do they avoid saturdays?

    They tend to be utilised differently on a Saturday. With the large number of events on a weekend they can often be found performing station barrier checks for football matches, food markets, festivals and all the other events that bring large crowds to a single location.
