    TPE Scotland/Bolton/Manchester. How to stop commuters boarding?

    I wouldn't bet on a court sharing that view. I'm quite confident that the criminality in both scenarios is the same.

    TPE Scotland/Bolton/Manchester. How to stop commuters boarding?

    Why is this different to getting on at Bolton and being asked to buy a new ticket from Preston to Manchester? (let's ignore someone actually going to Preston, that's very clearly a different matter)

    TPE Scotland/Bolton/Manchester. How to stop commuters boarding?

    I don't understand your second paragraph at all. Using a Manchester to Bolton ticket on a Manchester to Bolton train, what offence do you propose is committed? How is this different to using a Bolton to Manchester ticket on a Bolton to Manchester train!?

    Road Sweeper/ Tram incident on Manchester Airport line

    Railways that are now roads

    The line from Colnbrook to Staines is now the M25. Personally I think they should have left it there and just built a AHB

    Taxis

    TfL extend this privilege to PHVs too! They have to have a roundel in a shield-shaped sticker in the windscreen, to allow enforcement cameras to identify them.
