We are committed to a firm but fair approach in preventing and reducing the level of fare evasion and anti-social-behaviour offences on our services and at our stations.
Additionally we protect our car parks; Penalty Parking Notices are issued by dedicated officers to vehicles failing to comply with the rules posted at Northern managed car parks.
If you are caught breaking *Railway rules and regulations you may receive a Fixed Penalty or we may prosecute you.
* Railways and Tramways, Regulation of Railways Act 1889: Shall be liable on a summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 (£1,000) on the standard scale. Or in the discretion of the court to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months.
Railway Byelaw offences: Shall be liable on a summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 (£1,000) on the standard scale.
If you have been stopped and had your details taken by an authorised member of Northern Rail staff, we will contact you by post in due course.
We have taken the more lenient step of issuing you with a warning. You may also be requested to pay an outstanding fare and an administrative charge of £30.
The payment of the outstanding fare (only) must be made within 21 days of your receipt of the notice. If you do not pay within 21 days there will be an administrative charge of £30.
You have travelled from a station where ticket purchasing facilities were available and functional at the start of your journey. You have 21 days in which to pay the outstanding fare (only) shown on the notice.
The decision has been taken to dispose of this matter by way of an £80 Fixed Penalty. This notice offers you the opportunity of discharging any liability to conviction for an offence by payment of the Fixed Penalty within 14 days from the date on the letter. You may also be requested to pay an outstanding fare.
This notice carries a £50 penalty to be paid within 14 days following its issue. Failure to make payment in the specified timescale may result in you incurring an increase in the penalty and an administration fee. Failure to respond will result in the registered owner's details being requested from the DVLA.
Northern Rail operates a robust independent appeals service that covers all alleged offences. Northern Rail will consider any dispute or appeal from the commission of any alleged offence up to and including the day of a court hearing.
