/ Missing train connections due to rail replacement buses
Looks like I'm going to miss my connection because the rail replacement bus took ages. I arrived when I was meant to. Anyone know if I'm going to have to buy another ticket?
if you've got one ticket all the way through they should put you on the next train with no problem.
If you've got a separate ticket for the next part of the connection for some reason then you might have a problem, but it's worth asking at the ticket office.
Happened to me once, it was the last train too, they put me in a taxi.
also look up the train company's "delay repay" scheme - if as a result of the missed connection you finish your journey more than a certain amount of time late [it varies between companies but generally 30mins to 1hr) you can claim back some of the cost of the ticket. You have to fill in a form and apply for it though.
This is as well as them getting you on the next connection without charging you for a new ticket :)
