    What is a management contract and how is it different from normal rail franchises & the OLR

    Hopefully the DfT will allow some scope for local decision making and not want to ratify every small thing prior to implementation. Otherwise there's going to be a very full in-tray somewhere in the DfT.

    Season ticket refund

    These queries haven't been answered and I'm interested in how the refunds and changeovers are calculated too. Can anyone clarify the calculations please?

    Peak restrictions (coronavirus)

    Can see your point but don't agree, as it would penalise key workers on later shifts by making them pay more than normal.

    5-10 Zip Oyster advice

    You don’t say where you are travelling from, but train companies often have discounts available - such as the “Kids for £2” on Thameslink https://www.thameslinkrailway.com/tickets/discounts-and-railcards/kids-for-2 Also available on GN and Southern.

    Through tickets from LU to NR from LU machines

    May well be more expensive, but worth checking the TfL Contactless fare for the full journey, as St Albans is now enabled for that (but not Oyster)

    GN Class 717

    Some of the current skipped stops (eg Hatfield) were short term adjustments from the long term plan, so that the services could be delivered by the 313s. Hopefully they will all be corrected in May. The preliminary info in planners suggests that could well be the case, but will need to await...

    Welwyn Garden City to Heathrow fare difference

    Going towards Heathrow there are now lifts at Finsbury Park - route is convoluted, but not long (2 lifts). Trains busy in morning peak, but quite a lot of passengers do get off there. Returning, the lift up to platform 7/8 hasn’t been installed yet, so Kings Cross might be better with heavy...

    Ticket Routing Enquiry - Peterborough to Heathrow.

    The second text you quote matches the info given here https://eastcoastupgrade.co.uk/travel-information/. So far in the project that website has been among the first to carry news re dates etc, so worth watching, particularly for info beyond 12 weeks. (Edited to clarify I meant the 2nd text)
