The problem with having a little bit of knowledge of railway matters means that friends and relatives often ask for advice. Glad to help as far as my knowledge allows - but of course there's no allowing for what they might actually experience!
My young nephew, low-waged, was desirous of...
Is it the day before your 24th birthday or your 25th ?
Also are Trainline offering their discount on 3 year cards? I suspect not.
Thanks for any info. Can't seem to quickly find it myself. Being hassled by a nephew. The perils of being known as a rail enthusiast! :rolleyes:
As it says really. Recently had a 100% claim for a split-ticket journey delayed for over an hour. Should I just claim the ticket prices, or is it acceptable to claim Trainsplit's commission also?
After all, by using a split I have saved the TOC money in this instance.
Off to Hull for a few days next week, courtesy of Northern's £1 fares and one thing I want to do is go across the Humber Bridge.
Anybody know if there are any bus services over it? Or any general tips where to head for, what to do etc?
I made a claim for a slightly convoluted return journey from Bristol to Coventry on 16th August. I arrived at New Street around 40 minutes late (that much is simple enough - though obviously I split at Cheltenham) This delay meant I missed my Coventry connection and the next train got me there...
Just booked my wife Coventry to Bath and Return. Blithely ticked Disabled Railcard of course as she's had one for several years.
Thanks to the many instances on this Forum, it suddenly occurred to me to check it - and sure enough it expired last March.
Should be more careful, you might think...
Thought about that thread where it was discussed (at length!) about whether it was okay for standard passengers to "steal" them.
I'm on a First Class jolly to Blackpool today and of course no sight nor sound of one - and hasn't been for fifteen months and more. Yet all that while Metros have...
I witnessed a somewhat disturbing scene at a station this week whilst out on my travels. Waiting to get off the train I was alongside a young woman who saw I was looking for a litter bin and remarked that they don't seem to have them on the trains any more. I bemoaned that fact and got of at the...
At Kenilworth today to pick-up a pre-ordered TOD for a Coventry departure. Chalk board outside saying "Don't Use The Internet for Tickets, Buy them Here - While you still can!"
Made me feel quite guilty, though it did occur to me that it would probably help if any trains had actually stopped...
Anybody know what is happening to the Curzon Street Victorian Roundhouse foundations that were uncovered next to the line into New Street?
Pre-pandemic I greatly enjoyed watching it being slowly uncovered, and perhaps somewhat naively assumed it was there to stay. But travelling this week it...
Got a trip lined up tomorrow to visit the Severn Beach Line. I'm only going as I've got a friend down there and I thought here's a chance to get off my usual beaten track.
I wasn't expecting much - but looking in an old guide it makes the claim: " the Severn Beach line is held by some to be...
Trying to come up with a quiz on station suffixes that have now disappeared, although the station remains.
Struggling a little off the top of my head.
So far I've got:
I'm sure you've got a couple of hundred more. Appreciate it. Thanks.
I've got an advance ticket Crewe to Manchester and just assumed I would have to go to Piccadilly, but what does the wording "Manchester Stations" mean?
Does it give further options?
I want to get to Victoria and thought I would need to catch a tram, but the wording implies not.
Here's a complicated one if anybody fancies having a go at it.
My son was wishing to travel from Coventry to Spalding yesterday, coming back today. It didn't seem possible as I assume there is no service from Spalding on Sundays. I told him to travel to Spalding on Saturday but would have to...
Whilst buying a Day return from Blake Street to Lichfield TV (Two stops - ten minute journey. £2.70) from the machine at New Street, I was astounded to be informed that my ticket was not valid via Southsea Hoverport!
Well, that was my day's travel scuppered, I can tell you, and obviously I...
Every time I go to Lancaster something seems to go wrong - so obviously I was up there on Wednesday attempting to travel back to the West Midlands.
I was killing time before catching the 14.57 Virgin, queuing to buy a ticket for the Castle Guided Tour, when at 12.15 I got a text advising me my...
