  1. Hi all...Earlier in March I travelled Super off peak single with a railcard that was a couple of weeks out of date. I didn't realise until I hopped on the train. I recieved a letter this morning from FGW telling me they are preparing the case for court! If i am convicted of an offence I could be ordered to pay a fine of £1000 and/or be sentenced to 3 months imprisoment. Basically I think it's completley unjust that they are charging me £160.95 as I already payed the original fare just my railcard was out of date! I think this is completley taking the P@**S! Please help if you know of
  2. Hello, your help would be much appreciated. I recently travelled on a Chiltern Railways train out of Marylebone and was threatened with prosecution for attempting to re-use a ticket i later realised had already been used. This was a genuine inadvertent attempt as my wallet is always rammed full of unexpired tickets as i don't always use return legs. However, in this case, clearly according to their technology i had already used it. Here's what happened... After being thwarted at the barrier, I asked one of the train employees nearby why it didn't work (at this stage i was genu
  3. Let me begin by saying what an idiot I have been. I was traveling on the train from A to C. I got on the train and requested the conductor for a ticket. His machine was not working and asked me to buy a ticket once I get off. I got off at my station and went to the counter to buy a ticket. In what can be described as a momentarily lapse of thinking, I said I got on at station B. Since station B is manned at all time, I could not have got on to the train and hence I was caught. The person at the ticket counter took a copy of my university ID card and I scribbled my address on a piece of p
  4. Hi, The other day I was caught without a ticket once I had left the train, I was cautioned and had a statement taken. If I would have stopped to get a ticket before boarding I would have missed it so thought I would get one from the conductor, who never reached me. I know that this shouldnt be done and that you should purchase from stations when available and I am not disputing the fact that Northern have a case against me. I have not yet received a letter but when I do does it always end up in court or can you settle out of court?
  5. Fed up with astronomical rail fares and overcrowded trains? Then fight back by joining the Fair Fares Now campaign to demand cheaper, simpler and fairer rail ticketing. From today commuters in some parts of the country are being asked to pay £5,192, or 20% of the average UK salary, for their annual season ticket. It’s outrageous – and if it is to change, you need to show how you feel about it. The worst of the fare increases won’t come into effect until January 2012, so we have a one year to influence the Government. Millions of us want cheaper train fares – and together we can make
