I am a career railwayman, Station Manager for London Charing Cross station way back in the 1990s, and Customer Relations Manager for two UK train companies. I was the UK Government's expert on rail fares and ticketing at the Department for Transport until 2007. I started a website about train travel as a hobby, because I don't think the commercial companies do a good enough job explaining everything!
