Background A Ticket Inspector issued an Unpaid Fare Notice, claiming that the ticket which I was using was not valid for travel on that particular service. The matter is still in dispute, and its outcome is largely irrelevant for the purposes of this question. Issue At the time of issuing the notice, the Inspector took my Rail Card, presumably to write down the details on the Notice form. After issuing the Notice, the Inspector then walked off down the train with my Rail Card, behaving as if he could not hear me when I repeatedly asked for it back. Due to the nature of the Inspector's intimidating preceding conduct, I did not wish to confront him for fear of physical confrontation. I still do not have my rail card. Question Was the Inspector entitled to confiscate my rail card, which was in date and which had nothing to do with the Notice issue which was at point? Any thoughts or comments would be much appreciated. Thank you.
