The Government confirmed last year that charter trains are classed as public transport, so face mask rules apply. It was widely reported in all the magazines at the time. Here's a link from RAIL magazine - https://www.railmagazine.com/news/n...-confirm-face-coverings-required-for-charters So every charter operator will need to comply. I'm on a Pathfinder trip this Saturday and am fully expecting them to send me an email before then telling me I'll need to wear a face mask whilst on board. My next LSL trip is Dec 18th so we'll see what they say by then but they don't really have a choice about it!
