    GTR Delay Repay following a Fail to Call

    Just had an email back from GTR regarding a delay on the 10th October. I was attempting to travel from Stevenage to Arlesley on the 12:44 service. This train was upwards of 30 late and the stops at Arlesley, Sandy and St. Neots were ripped out. I had to alight at Hitchin as a result. The next...

    Track Diagrams

    I'm after taking track coverage to the next level. I've currently got a Baker Atlas, however I've covered a fair bit of the track in that now-with the exception of areas I've never visited at all. The Quail atlases look perfect-however the North West & Midlands one (covering my local area) has...

    New Phone

    Right. Looks like my trusty Samsung Galaxy S6 of 2.5 years has given up. Was on charge in the kitchen at 89%, unplugged it and went to switch it on in the living room. Nothing. Not a thing. This was an hour ago, and it's still lifeless. I'm going to take it into Samsung tomorrow to look at...

    Trying to work out the mileage from my farce of a trip to Nottinghamshire 3 weeks or so back. Struggling to find the required mileages for the NET network-they aren't on the forum and a quick search has sent me to the distances just for the extensions. Help?:D I need: Bulwell-Hucknall...

    Advance fare pricing discrepency

    Not come across this before. Searched on NRE on my way into Liverpool for advances to and from Glasgo in October. This is a journey I do several times a year, so am familiar with the correct fares-NRE was displaying £7.90 railcard advances each way from Warrington to Glasgow. I've just gone...

    Purchasing of 16-18 Merseytravel Saveaways

    On the 31st July, Merseyrail introduced a requirement to have ID to purchase a 16-18 ticket. Since then, I've had several problems purchasing a ticket. The posters advertising the requirement clearly state that you must have a Merseyrail ID Card, Passport or Driving License. I've just...

    Penalty Fare Schemes

    I've just phoned the Customer Relations department of a TOC that operates a 'Penalty Fake' scheme-ie. One that the TOC wants people to think is a penalty fare, but is not regulated by the Penalty Fare rules (Merseyrail being an example of a TOC conforming to the official Penalty Fare rules)...

    London Midland shack clearout (04/02) First serious trip report , so feel free to give feedback. Not sure if I’m planning to make this a regular thing, and I’d be lying if I said I was doing this one to make Southport-Liverpool South Parkway feel a bit quicker! Here goes: I was awake at...

    What happens if a passenger of an invalid ticket has no means to pay for a new one?

    What happens if a passenger does not have the means to pay the anytime single to the next station? On EMT at super off peak time (for example) that could be quite a lot more than the passenger was expecting to be charged!

    Tram drivers using mobile phones

    I'm not naming the tram system I'm on as I'm not necessarily after getting the guy in trouble, but I've just alighted a tram where I had noticed the driver using a mobile phone while the tram was moving at around 70kph. Thinking of the recent tram derailment in Croydon (ok-that wasn't a driver...

    Excess Fares Query

    I hold an Off Peak Day Return ticket from Preston to Blackpool North for today, which cost £4.80 with a railcard. I went to the ticket office at BPN and asked to excess the return to Wigan, for which I was charged £3.60. Was this correct, I was under the impression that it was half of the...

    Inappropriate 'Jokes' on Twitter

    Reading twitter earlier I noticed some clown (I hope, or this is a genuine threat). Posting this to TPE. Not sure what to make of this to be honest. Either way, TPE have (naturally) taken this extremely seriously and reported this to...
