Stacey Toman, 29, travels on the train twice a week with her young son.

She said: “I think it’s a bit rubbish. I thought that was one of the benefits of the train.”

Jack Finlay, 59, travels with his granddaughter. “It’s probably fair they do, because a child takes a seat,” he said.

Martin Wardrop, 64, said: “We get free buses, but the train’s a lot quicker, so I probably would pay the pound.”

Erin Bailey, 38, said: “I travel on the train quite a lot. I can understand why they would charge you, since you take up room.”

Bruce Chalmers, said he was “all on board” with the policy.

Roz Baynham said: “A pound’s fine.”
