What would happen if you got on a train without a ticketWatch
Say if you wanted to go from birmingham to London and you just hopped on the train without a ticket in thr hope that the ticket inspector doesn't come (because it's not 100% certain they check all tickets). However he did come and you tried to avoid him bu hiding under a table or going to the bathroom but he finds you and i say that I've dropped something on the floor which is why I'm underneath the table. The he asks to see my ticket and I rummage through my bags to convince him that I bought one. However I say that I lost it and I don't have the money to pay for a new one.
What would happen to me?

What if you refused to accept the penalty fine. He can't issue he fine if I don#t tell him anything about me. Then I'll get off at the next station and get the next train. If it happens again I'll keep hopping on trains until I get to my station?
Edit- forgot to add, I was six years old and had no say in this. So get off your high horses.
If they do catch you either you'll have to buy a fare, or they'll give you a fine, if you refuse then expect to be greeted by the police on the next stop.
It really isn't worth the hassle especially with the hefty fines and all the ticket barriers, there's a very good chance you'll get caught and then you'll be crying when you see the fine.
But apparently the inspectors do try to wake you up...
That can be quite funny especially if the guy is blatantly pretending to be sleeping!
