  1. Hi all. A few days ago I was travelling on a train and caught without a ticket. it was not by a normal inspector and instead an enforcer of some kind who took matters more seriously. I had come from a small station where the ticket machine often does not work and so I said that was the reason i didn't have a ticket and was not intending to complete the journey without paying. He said that I had ample time at the station where I changed to go and buy a ticket. He also said that because the station i got on at and the one i would leave at did not have barriers that i could have intended to do the journey without paying. I apologised and said that i had planned on paying on the train, but after research its clear this isnt good enough. The whole conversation was recorded and he asked my details etc and i think he said i would be receiving a letter with an admin fee. I have done some research my question is will the letter offer an admin fee because i'm quite scared of the prospect of a court hearing and potential criminal record? Is there a way they could find out the ticket machine was in fact working (i'm not sure it was) and prosecute further or will they just want a quick penalty fee? Thanks in advance for you help.
  2. Hello People First of all thanks to admin for creating this platform for people to ask their questions. To begin with me and my wife worked full time and had our own individual train pass but she went on maternity in sept 2012 and joined work in jul 2013. We both work for same company and we work flexible hours now so i work 4 days a week and she works remaining of the 3 days so that we can look after our daughter ourselves. We thought it was obvious that we take one monthly pass as only one of us will be at work at a time, which i know now is not allowed and did a grave mistake by not checking it before. My wife was caught using pass which was registered in my name. We both got a letter from the train company to attend a interview at the train station. Now we dont know what will happen, what to expect in the interview whether they will be happy to do out of court settlement or w will be prosecuted, we just started a family and dont want to ruin our future. If anyone has any suggestions or tips or any personal experience please share and help. We both are hardworking individuals in fact on the same train journey my wife found an unattended wallet and she rightfully handed over to the ticket master before she was caught using my train pass i am aware this has nothing to do with my query but just thought ill share. Thanks
