    Misuse of Spouse travel Pass

    Also to use an example, I have a company credit card, if I misuse it I fully expect to be sacked, but if I misuse it I don't think it would be reasonable for my boss to also get the sack even if he had responsibility of making sure I knew where and when it could be used, yes maybe some form of...

    Misuse of Spouse travel Pass

    Personally I would now put in an appeal, again nothing to lose, get proper advice how to do this, I would be going along the lines that the sanction is unreasonably severe as it was not your direct actions that led to the situation, it was the actions of "someone" who's actions you were...

    Convictions are not wiped clean when 18 Unless It's a specified offence or a custodial sentence which will stay forever, then for under 18s it stays on their record for 5 and half years

    Misuse of Spouse travel Pass

    Evidence may have helped you "get off" with it, but even with no evidence and found to have committed gross misconduct that wouldn't have been simply a dismissal, again it would all have went down to your relationship with manager etc there would have been a fair chance of a sanction short of...

    WCML Disruption in Scotland (02/02/2021)

    At around 80 miles, it would take best part of 24 hrs at 3mph to get there, longmoor at 3mph would seem more likely or a higher speed to Polmadie, 10 mph probably be enough not to impact services in the morning Edit just seen your next post, answers that one then!

    GWR dispute regarding journeys between Totnes and Exmouth

    To just be trying their luck they must believe that you have made more than just 5 journeys, have you made 20 journeys by train between any destinations in the last 3 years, also if they are looking for a 2k settlement for 20 journeys that's likely 20 journeys of around a ticket value of £100...

    GWR dispute regarding journeys between Totnes and Exmouth

    So not making any other journeys really at all, even from other stations? As what they could be looking at in your journey history etc is say you bought a ticket for a shorter journey from another station to but then picked it up at ivybridge, they could tell where the ticket was collected from...
