Just as an addition to the Oyster stuff below, I’ve just been down to Charlton station and found that you can now top up your Oyster card or add travelcards to your ticket from the machine outside. I checked it and it works. If you’re a Southeastern customer, it’s worth checking at your local station because hopefully you’ll be able to do the same.
There’s still no publicity, though, to tell people that many fares are now cheaper under Oyster, especially with Southeastern hiking the cost of paper tickets.
However, under the circumstances, you might then like to top up your ticket elsewhere, perhaps at your local friendly corner shop, because if Southeastern is going to keep on mucking its passengers around in this weather, it certainly doesn’t deserve the commission it’ll get from those ticket sales…
(More Oyster on National Rail posts, if you want more…)
