The other month the train (Centro) was already in when I got to Redditch train station so I just got on the train expecting to be able to buy a regular 'cheap day return' on there - and the inspector charged me for a full price standard - so since then I've been making sure I get to the train station a bit earlier. Although last week when I went up in the afternoon, the counter wasn't open in the station so people were buying the tix from the machine. I waited at the machine to buy mine and one of the guys who works at the train station came past and actually said to me 'just buy it on the train'. So they're not setting a good example unless he said that expecting me to be loaded and want to pay extra anyway. I didn't... since it was my go next at the machine - but then we had our hour delay because of the branch on the line and in the end no-one came round at all checking our tix at all. I was actually wishing I'd not bought one due to the crappy hour delay which put me in a stressed out mood as I was late meeting people. But yeah, I guess everyone needs to make sure they get to the train station that little bit earlier to buy before they get on.

You think they'd like to ~encourage~ people to use the trains...

Don't you buy your tickets online in advance and pick up when you get to the station?

Not normally no.

I is led to believe this is a much more efficient means of business travel. If you know when and where you're going in advance, I 'spect.
