I took this journey this Friday just gone (24th) and I should firstly explain that of course I did pay for this journey, the £60 Advance ticket having been bought 2 months ago. What amazed me though is that between arriving at Wrexham station and walking out of Edinburgh station (changed at Crewe), not only did I not have to pass through any barriers; my ticket and seat reservation weren't checked once during the whole journey! So in effect then, had I been a deliberate fare dodger, I could have had my comfy first class seat, my lovely breakfast and all that coffee and juice totally free! That's incredible! How could this be when the train terminates at Edinburgh and there are no ticket barriers for the Inter City platforms? Comments anyone?
