If you're in to wild camping you can get off at some remote station on the Saturday, spend the night in the wilderness and travel home the next day from the same/nearby station.

If anyone knows a way of searching for tickets but limiting it to just one operators trains I'd be interested.

That's more up to date, but it's still not showing the Lancaster-Oxenholme-Windermere route that Northern have been running for a couple of years.
Typical no newspapers in Cumbria .

Where in Cumbria are you?
I've seen the Lancaster Post in Windermere (Booths), and the Newcastle Journal in a few shops in Carlisle.

The old Pacer units are finally being retired from the UK network this year, they're then going to be upgraded and sent to India where they'll be used for the transportation of livestock.

Not quite renationalisation, more stripped of their franchise and then possibly run by OLR which is a government owned company.
Couple of months ago massive cancellations here in NW. Was flying from MAN in the evening, went 2--3 hour earlier to the train station to ask if my train will depart as scheduled. They told me its too early to know, and check on the app for any updates, and can be cancelled even last min. Also in the case of cancellation, there will be no alternative bus service. Practically you book a ticket and you are not sure till last min if you are travelling or not. In which part of the world this sort of "service" is acceptable?! So, no thanks, never with them again till they completety restructure their business, I want to book a train ticket not a lottery ticket.

AFAIK they have to provide alternate transport, so if they haven't provided a bus you can request they send a taxi which they four the bill for.

According to the woman behind the desk, there is bus service only for scheduled cancellations(!) otherwise no bus, and I can ask for a refund(!!). When I asked what are my options that evening if my train is cancelled, the reply was "we cannot talk hypothetically" (!!!). I had to get a taxi in the past, when the last train to the airport was cancelled after I failed to stop a woman start walking along the rail lines(!) and had to call the police . Never got back the £40 I paid for the taxi. An elder work mate, who is not driving and use the train regularly, said to me that most of the times doesn't get the cost of the taxi back. Needless to say that 7/10 I use the train, is not on time, at least 15-20 min late. Baffles me how people tolerate this sort of situation

They were a lot more punctual over 100 years ago when they had steam engines and no computers etc. I'd agree some bits have gone very wrong.

On Sunday 11 March the National Rail Conditions of Carriage, which apply to train firms across Great Britain, will be updated. And the clause saying companies aren't liable for 'consequential loss' – additional costs arising from delays – other than in "exceptional circumstances" will be removed.

It will be replaced with a line saying you can claim using your statutory rights, such as under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 – though there are no guarantees this will mean you'll be able to successfully claim in practice.

Dream on. The removal of that clause won't make a jot of difference unless everyone who's train is cancelled is prepared to take it to court every time. They will still provide transport home if your last train is cancelled, as they have always done, but if you think they will pay for taxis for every passenger in every train that is cancelled, then you should think again my friend.
Do Currys pay for you to take your washing to the laundrette when your washing machine breaks down? Or pay for you to go to the cinema if your TV breaks down? No, they fix it or replace it. Likewise, a TOC will provide an alternative train in the same way (excluding last trains as I already mentioned).

I think you ignore the part that it's a service and not a product. Do you think e.g. in Germany or Holland, if a train is cancelled, they will just shrug their shoulders? Lived there for quite some time, using train very regularly. Never had a train cancelled, if fact Im not ever sure if ever had one running late. If that happens, it will be on the news, and heads will roll. You can say that all these are irrelevant, but that's the industry's standards. Unless you want to set the same benchmarks as of these of developing world countries.

They don't just shrug their shoulders. They put you on another train, or if it's the last one that's cancelled, they'll make sure you get home safely.
