    Are GWR lying to me 1st Mar 17 at 6:52 AM
    Re in law's PCN, GWR have come back to me saying that Tilehurst Station car park, (51*28'12.28" N, 1*01'38.65"W), is not covered by Railway Bye Laws, and have referred me to the PPC.

    I find this very difficult to believe, the land is adjacent to the tracks, has access to the tracks, and has maintenance material stored on it. How can it not be railway land?

    Must be a fob off TD, loads of signs showing on Google Streetview but unreadable, I see it's good old APCOA not many braincells there!

    Can't you get the memsahib to push you down there in the bath chair for a gander old chap?

    I agree, but the signs should say (entrance sign must say if byelaws apply).
    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the breadcrumb trail, top of page: Household & Travel > Motoring > Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking & READ THE 'NEWBIES' FAQS THREAD.
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    I have now asked GWR three times if the land is covered by bye-laws, a simple enough question you would think. They have again failed to answer the question and referred me back to APCOA. This reminds me of PMQs.

    I agree, but the signs should say (entrance sign must say if byelaws apply).

    The sign does not. This can mean one of two things, that the land is not covered by bye laws, or that the sign is misleading.

    The Station Manager has told me that the land is owned by Railrrack, leased to FGW, and contracted out to APCOA. .

    Another reply from FGW. In this one they say that they do not know who owns the land. I find this difficult to believe.

    tell them your wife owns it , and gives you permission to park , if they disagree , tell them to produce the land owners name

    mind you a £3 search might just settle things
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?

    £3.00, that would buy me a week's tripe and onions.
