crap post. This just takes the pee! XD


By paying the over-inflated rail prices, were already funding far more than the cost of a measly toilet, and yes, they are irrelevant questions as a small business is totally different to what we're discussing, even at that you mention charities, many of them manage to treat toilets as a necessary expense, if a charity can do it, why can't one of the busiest train stations in the country?


WTF! What's my profile got to do with this? Stick to the topic in question. No, you mean millions over the term of the contract franchise, Yes but partially & it's not on a gold plate without any restrictions or conditions to allow them to operate that service, it's their business model. I'm aware of some CEOs salary can be obscene at the top to the likes below rank but who offered those jobs to them for their experience & expertise? I agree that if the salaries were to be spread fairly across the board then staff moral & efficiency would increase improve massively in harmony with better service to the public but who came up with those silly employment contracts in the first place, board of directors, shareholders? Do you want to upskill yourself to run the train business if you can do better? How about tell Richard Branson to reduce his pension plans for the future himself to offset the cost to those below ranks & pass it on to the public because @rossss doesn't like paying for toilets? I wonder if Richard Branson uses those toilets himself since he's paid for it improving & maintaining them but expect to let every Tom, Dick & Harry to use them for free? Free to the public but train companies can absorbed the cost for nothing. A business is to make profit to stay in business or how do you expect the government collect taxes from staff & business?


Quite relevant to some degree as you decided not to answer. If you ran a business, I would like to know how you would run it & see if money is a driving force to pay bills or are you doing it for charity. It's still an extra to the business though who has to pay staff, cleaning equipment, chemicals, electric, water, toilet rolls, repairs for wear & tear & damages, Can you get these for free? NO, someone is paying for it & it's coming out from someone's pocket. Doesn't matter if it part of an expense that goes with the territory. It will get passed on somehow. This will be my last reply to you as it's clear we'll have to agree to disagree on this. After all this, it's very well clear that one like yourself is one who doesn't like paying even when it's someone's problem to absorb the extra expense. You have a choice, you pay or you don't pay. (annoyed)


You're arguing completely irrelevant points! They can easily afford to provide free toilets, just like almost any other business does, cleaning them should be considered an expense that goes with the territory, not an extra.

Whats the famous expression..? "If you can't beat them, join them." You started the trolling Einstein! 😋

pompompom poor thing hiding underneath that orange parka. trolling on other people..sad sad world south park kenny


Ha. Not as jealous as I am of the 1st class passengers on the train, my face squashed against the glass doors on the other side that's rammed full to the point where you can't see the floor, wondering what I did to deserve this :(


Judging by the reply, writing and grammar aren't your strongest points either ! ROFL (lol) However, assuming you are a 6yr old child, by the fact you like going to the seaside in England , I won't be too harsh in condemning your English skills (lol) 😁 PS. Is there much difference in sea temperature from now till March 25th? I doubt that very much.


Are you jealous that I have a car that works ? 😁 (lol)

Why should i have to understand the woes of the train operator? I pay for a service which they are supposed to provide, the fact that they seem incapable or unwilling to do isnt my problem.......why should i put up with a 2nd rate service? 1) The route that I use on a daily basis is served only by the 25+ year old pacer style trains, they are slow, uncomfortable and poor quality. 2) They are always overcrowded, if im lucky i can get a seat maybe once a fortnight.. Often its only a 2 carriage train and people are left waiting at the station for the next train (30+ mins)... Its virtually impossible to get on the 8.14 train and as a result ive been forced to change my work hours and catch the 9.13am. 3) Trying to buy a ticket is becoming nigh on impossible!! The ticket machine at the station is out of order 80% of the time (has been reported many times), The ticket contractors handheld machine fails pretty much everyday, whether its battery or signal issues its always something (plus he knocks off at 8.40) The train is often so overcrowded the conductor is unable to provide tickets to anyone as he cant leave his cab! The mobile app is great...., i can purchase tickets at will... but they cant be scanned by the ticket gates in Leeds (yet!) so you have to find a friendly cs rep to let you through...maybe. Last resort is to venture to the ticket office in Leeds station on arrival, where there is always a very, very long queue and if you are unfortunate enough to be 1 of the 50 or so they seem to pick out at random for a hefty fine for travelling without a ticket! I tried a weekly/monthly pass but until recently they had to be renewed at the station because the conductor doesnt venture down the train and it couldnt be done online. 4) I can count the number of times the train has been 'on time' on one hand. This is why people either avoid using public transport or are fed up with the high costs and poor quality of service


Is it possible to get Manchester (any station) to York and return cheaply? TIA


I think Northern have good customer service, and they keep alive local stations at least! The thing that lets them down is sadly the trains. They're crap.


I've used Northern many times particularly Hull to Sheffield direct & on searching journeys on various dates I'm getting the invalid code message every time.


Op, your train knowledge is AMAZING! How on earth do you know all this stuff?! Am thinking you traverse the entire country, travelling by train.

Yes got to agree best route. But having worked on and driven CL 37,s for for living I can assure you the cab is not pleasant


"Poor driver" in his air conditioned vintage Diesel cab with panoramic views of the Cumbrian Coast. (_;) I bet it's the best route to work in the UK!


Worrying about comfort in coaches , what about poor driver in his noisy and extremely draughty cab even makes CL 66 seem luxurious Voted hot though great find

While there's potential in what littld is saying I think it's still a deal. I went from Blackburn to York on £20 return earlier this year and had a lovely day there. To do that trip on £10 is pretty dam good! I wonder why there's a form to fill in though.


This is very expensive considering they will cancel all of the services on these dates. You might be able to get a replacement bus service between one station and another. The train home will be lacking a driver so you can't get on. Sounds horrible.


Got mixed up LOL I live in the north....but eastcoast is the serverer here. Cheers

Northern Rail/Network Rail - Buckshaw Village Station (near Chorley) still charging Bank Holiday prices

Cheers for the support, getting warmer already.


The girlfriend's been going to work from Great Missenden this week and they've been doing off peak fares all day, every day between Christmas and New Years. Apparently Chiltern Railways are doing this on all of their routes, thus this deal seems entirely plausible.


Well all of my other colleagues paid full price for a ticket this morning (including me from Bolton), in fact all this week. However Buckshaw Village Station are still not charging full price, so that's an anomaly. It was advised to me that these are Bank Holiday prices rather than off peak prices, but maybe he has the wrong end of the stick - you don't ask you don't get and it's worth a punt if you live there, surely?


Bank Holiday prices are normal off peak prices - this would only have been any use before 09:30 today, hence expired. And even if the machine had sold off peak prices at peak time you'd still end up paying the extra if caught by a conductor or revenue staff....


Np. I can see many others think this desrves to be voted Cold though. [shrugs]

Cold for me, trains are a disgrace most of the time I use em and invariably they seem to have loads of carriages on when it's quiet and saturday evening around 5pm when everyone is coming back from Meadowhell there is usually only 1 or 2 carriages so everyone is crammed on.


Hi op I can pick up 2 for you


london midland's offer is better


Seems they are the same all over then. I use the Morpeth->Newcastle train most days and although they don't get overcrowded they are really old, filthy trains. They look like some out of commission trains from the 70's most of the time. You can guarantee that there will be at least 1 cancellation per week on the homebound train (always the same train 17:50 one) but they never tell you about it. You only find out when the thing doesn't arrive so you have to wait an extra 40 minutes on the next one. Never any apologies either.


Cos s/he's a southerner so northern is pointless for em. Heat from me as you can just get it for a decent day trip somewhere.
