OP was talking about the taxi fare which was bound to be extortionate I think

OP when I miss a connecting train due to late service the station pays for the taxi but you must do complaints within 7 days.

I am not sure about law but thats the rules for Virgin Trains, pick up a complains form at station and fill it in within a week.

I think it was East Coast,it doesn't say a time frame online :

Compensation for delays

If you travel on a East Coast service that is delayed by more than 30 minutes due to things for which we are responsible, we will give you compensation in the form of Rail Travel Vouchers.

We are not obliged to pay compensation for journeys delayed by circumstances outside of our control, such as adverse weather conditions
