    Rail Community Officer powers

    Taking, or appearing to take, photos of security measures is one of the handful of things *specifically* highlighted in the infamous 'see it say it sorted' video messages, which play on public screens at major stations, including Waterloo. It's therefore not completely surprising OP was...

    Gatwick to Zone2 with oyster and railcard

    The back office processing for contactless will already get this right (split OSIs where doing so gives a lower fare), so when Oyster moves to using that then Oyster users will benefit. However, it doesn't do railcards yet.

    Abandoned journey with a season ticket, is it delay repay

    Although on some occasions SWR twitter has said that season ticket holders who choose not to travel can claim DR. Don't think they said this this week but can't be sure.

    Delayed due to incorrect passenger information - who to claim from?

    Back in 2019, on 27 December. Intending to catch 1Z14, the 1031 Great Western from Fratton FTN to Southampthon Central SOU, due to arrive there at 1108. On that day all TOCs in the area were having various minor to moderate problems, but I had tracked the unit due to form the 1031 on its journey...

    Routings allowed

    Not sure why you'd get issues. From Horsham to Ockley you're doing part of a journey from Croydon to Ockley on a permitted route, so you're fine; and then from Ockley to Sutton you're doing part of a journey from Ockley to Croydon on a (different) permitted route, so you're fine again. It would...

Is it just the rain...

    Bracknell to Canary Wharf

    That would mean interchanging at Paddington from the current NR station all the way down to the EL; it remains to be seen exactly how easy that is, or not. See for example for a cutaway diagram of the...

    Bracknell to Canary Wharf

    Only you can know your personal commute time tolerance, and even then only through experience. Have you had such a long commute before? They are not for everyone. I will echo comments about the relative ease of using the Jubilee from Waterloo at that time of a weekday. Even though it's two or...

    Caledonian Sleeper delay and impact on missed connection

    I see you arrived Euston 5 minutes after your planned departure, bit annoying. Did they arrange acceptance like they said?

    Should time restricted fares be abolished?

    This isn't a dichotomoy - surely the only reasonable answer is 'both, depending'. Services arriving at London terminals in the morning peak are enormously oversubscribed, and ideally people would be encouraged onto other services. Or, which is the same, discouraged from these services.
