    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    Hi all, thank you again for all your replies! (which I’m digesting…..) Can I ask a potentially basic question please; if both my trains were operated by GWR (just checked), what role do TfW play in all of this please? Many thanks again TP

    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    Have also spoken to TfW customer services (generic queries, nothing specific to my case), and the person I spoke to (who was very helpful) was very clear that the obligation is for a passenger to seek out a conductor. Many thanks TP

    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    I remember vividly the gist of the conversation I had with the revenue inspector - I was told no I cannot buy a ticket because of how far I’ve come / where I’ve come from (cannot be exactly sure of teh words used), and had plenty of opportunity. I remember then joking how I could have just said...

    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    Also, in my written answer taken by the inspector I said Parson Street, plus expected departure time (17:06) and how long it was delayed by (14 mins). All exactly true, and pretty elaborate for someone wanting to change their story after being cautioned – but maybe some people are genuinely...

    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    Hi 30907 Thank you for your reply, and no worries, fully understood! When the barrier person asked me where I’ve just come from (which they did), I just said Bristol. I can’t escape that fact, it’s a reasonable response from someone from Bristol. Had I been asked what station have I...

    Transport Investigations “administrative option” - is this fair please?

    Hi there Thankyou again for all your replies! Please find attached my response letter – I’m sorry but I don’t really understand the TIL wording regarding laws and mitigation etc. I have omitted these concerns as I can’t articulate them TBH. Also, some further developments please which may...
