    Flexible Rail Season Tickets - 2/3 days per week to be introduced by June 2021

    ATW (Now TFW) certainly had something like that when I used to commute into Manchester a couple of years ago. Very useful.

    Northern 'Flexi-season tickets'

    TfW have a similar product called Multiflex. I used it for a while when I was still working in Manchester but not frequently enough to merit a season ticket.

    TFW Chester to Liverpool

    With the new TFW service from Chester to Liverpool (hopefully) starting in May, our local Facebook page has posts querying the likely cost of tickets. Would anyone know how soon before a new service starts do the ticket prices get issued please?

    Ticket price rises for 2014 - When will the new prices be available for us to see?

    It will be very interesting to see what the rises are. I had a season ticket but for work reasons I ended up not using it half the time as I was away on company business. I have just sat down and worked out that if the rise on my ordinary day return (no advance on ATW Helsby to Manchester) is...

    Was I missold? Help please.

    Well over 20 working days gone and no reply from Northern. Shoddy. Since this episode I have purchased this ticket several time from ATW.

    Was I missold? Help please.

    Sorry. My mistake. It was the 0649 out of Helsby connecting with the 0722 at Newton. --- old post above --- --- new post below --- That answers my question. Thanks very much and also thanks for the tip with the single!

    Was I missold? Help please.

    I am hoping someone can advise me if I was missold a ticket. Last week I was travelling from Helsby to Manchester Victoria via Newton Le Willows on the 0649 ATW. If I am not travelling back on the same day, ATW will sell me (on the train) an Off Peak Return for £14.60, 10p more than the Day...

    Northern Rail £10 Day Ticket

    Pay £10 to travel for a full day on 150's, 142's and 158's? No thanks. I have the misfortune to travel on Northerns stock every working day and it is dirty, noisy and frequently smelly. Whilst the staff have always been fine, the stock is dreadful. A £10 river seems a bargain. After an hour...

    Helsby to Manchester - Valid Routes

    No wonder ordinary customers get caught out. Sooo complicated for those without access to the relevant documentation. In summary. I can use my season ticket from Helsby to Man Picc and Man Vic via Warrington BQ. I can't use any other route (Crewe, Liverpool, Mid Cheshire) in the event of...

    Helsby to Manchester - Valid Routes

    It sounds to me then that should anything other than a direct service or one via Warrington is used then my ticket is not valid? Bad news if delayed then. :(

    Helsby to Manchester - Valid Routes

    Good morning.. I'm just about to commit to a 12 month season ticket for my commute. My normal route now is Helsby to Manchester Victoria via Newton Le Willows. I would appreciate however some advice on other valid routes, in case of delays, breakdowns, weather etc. I believe these are valid...

    Leeds - shortage of people selling tickets to arriving passengers?

    It is a problem. It is fine for TOC's to make stations unmanned and then force customers to buy their tickets on the train, so long as their are enough train staff available to sell them. On my commute, the staff usually get around (although some are far better than others) but sometimes they...

    Leeds - shortage of people selling tickets to arriving passengers?

    Out of interest, just how many passengers per year would be required to start their journey at a particular station before a) it merited a TVM or b) merited having a ticket office ope n? My local station has c75000 passengers and has no facility for purchasing tickets. It doesn't even have a...

    Stopping repeated use of Anytime Returns

    Barrier every major station and have the barrier machine print or mark the ticket as it goes through. All season tickets to be chipped to allow passage through the barrier as you do with an oyster card. I suppose cost would be an option but the cost could be offset by the reduction in lost fares.

    Thank you. I normally travel down from Runcorn so no issues like this occur.

    Virgin Voyager seating reservation and ticket.

    Hi. I am after some advice. I am due to travel to London Euston tomorrow morning on the 0835 from Chester with some family members. I have standard class tickets with seat reservations in coach D. If D is reclassified as First Class as I believe sometimes happens, will I lose my seat reservation?
