On 13 April 2008 I purchased a Day Travelcard from the ticket
machine adjacent to the FCC booking office at Kings Cross.
It was issued "between ST PANCRAS FCC & R1256 ZONES".
It would be interesting to know whether the amount retained at
St Pancras is more or less than at Kings Cross.
FCC is the only operator that runs services from either station to
destinations within the London zones.
The FastTicket machines inside and outside the Travel Centre at Kings
Cross offer a choice of Day Travelcards, i.e. from either St. Pancras
or Kings Cross. Last Saturday, I went for the St.Pancras option,
just for a change. It's not apparent to me why I needed to be given
How bizarre. From the passenger's perspective a Day Travelcard issued
within the zones is the same wherever it is purchased from and
regardless of what type of ticket stock it is issued on.
I guess the machine might ask the same question of any ticket
purchase, so as to ensure you end up with the right ticket - whilst
many tickets will be issued from London Terminals, for southbound
journeys on FCC Thameslink the ticket needs to be specifically issued
from St. Pancras. Though I still have my doubts over whether it's
really necessary for the question to be asked.
