Never got a reply on my email, and coming back from hols didn't had the time and the mindset to chase it up, although on second thoughts, I should have done at least on social media.
None of the stations in Burnley appear to have a help point, which is surprising. There's probably a notice with a phone number to call for help. Not necessarily easy to see at 11PM though. In your situation I'm sure most train companies would have refunded what you paid for the taxi, but if doesn't surprise me if Northern didn't, they're not good at things like that. Threatening to go to the local paper with your story might have helped.
Burnley to Manchester Airport. I'm not aware of any help point. There are just the ticket machines.
Which station was it? Most stations have help points, where you can press a button and get connected to the train company. If you'd used that you would probably have got better results. Train drivers and police won't know the procedures in that situation, but the train company would have been able to organise a taxi.
The last train to the airport was about at 11:00pm and the station's desk closing at 10:00...the only people on the platform when my train cancelled was the train driver and police...when I asked them what I'm supposed to do in order not to miss my flight at 05:00 in the morning, the reply was "sorry mate, we cannot help you, better get a taxi"...

anyone know what the cheapest fare are from Lancaster or is it just case of check daily ??? thanks :o
Same price as usual from Blackburn to Manchester when I checked. Northern fail need to sort themselves out, so many small stations need guards, as do wheelchair users. The rest of us like guards, especially on later trains when rowdy drunks are round. Saturday strikes may be an inconvenience, but less than unsafe trains for more profit...
Want to start working Saturdays instead of striking
It’s costing them loads for paying out all the refunds due to late trains, so some clever clogs at Northern has realised if they make the tickets cheaper it won’t cost as much for refunds.
Oh wow! Thank you! Am hoping to go the the Christmas markets with my best friend. This will get us an extra drink 🍷

Main toilets at Manchester Piccadilly station currently free whilst being refurbished
Barriers are open all the time at the moment to the main concourse toilets, they're finally being refurbished, in fact I think temporary ones may now be open on platform 10, just o… Read more
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! 😋
Awww...you 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)
