    I would be prepared to pay extra to reduce the chances of a train company wrongly prosecuting me for using split tickets

    I come back to, a passenger who doesn't want the risk of conflict can pay more for a through ticket if they want. It's the notion that they want to stop the rest of us from benefiting from split ticketing I din't understand.

    I would be prepared to pay extra to reduce the chances of a train company wrongly prosecuting me for using split tickets

    But the OP was being made from a passenger perspective, not a business one. I cannot see why any passenger would want to pay any more than they need to.

    I would be prepared to pay extra to reduce the chances of a train company wrongly prosecuting me for using split tickets

    If someone doesn't want to risk hassle from split ticketing and wants to pay for a through ticket, fine, no onr is stopping them, but why the proposal for a NRCoT chsnge to stop others from benefiting from split ticketing?

    Hull Trains to stop running from 30/03 until further notice

    The RMT can demand what they want. It doesn't mean they will get it. After all, when the service is suspended a strike would be meaningless.

    Northern cancellations and ticket validity

    Evrn in the current circumstances, that is an extraordinary large set of cancellations. For example, all Darlington-Saltburn services cancelled on Saturday? Not much good if you're trying to get to work. Northetn, the company that outshines all others in letting the public down yet again.

    Mobility Scooters on Northern Question

    I would have thought it should be possible to computer model that these days though, including modelling for different stations.

    Mobility Scooters on Northern Question

    One might have expected that risk assessment would have been done at the train design stage rather than now.

    NR Enquiries App - No longer showing platform numbers?

    I always find RTT very accurate as to platform numbers. It's certainly a big hr.p when you know that there is likely to be limited free seats on a train and so can get the right platform early.

    Split ticketing site for multiple railcards

    That's true. I should have thought of that!
