Further to a previous thread on the Travel Report on Interrail tickets, in 12 days the conductors never asked to see it. Having said that there were quite a few trains including 2 IC trains were the ticket was never checked. On 2 occasions using RE (semi-fast) trains I travelled for over 2 hours terminus to terminus and the ticket was never checked. I did find that train punctuality was very poor - even early in the morning trains were shown as being 5 to 15 minutes late and this continued throughout the day. The result was that if I planned connections of trains in the afternoon I always left at least a 30 minute margin. Having said that I enjoyed the time spent.
