A Checklist of
ELECTRONIC TICKET MACHINE ISSUING POINTS
on British Railway
and Light Rail Systems
These listings provide a brief history, together with details of all known placements, of electronic or computer based ticket issuing machines used on British Rail/National Railways, London Underground and other Light Rail transport systems in the UK.
Each file gives details of one machine type, starting with a brief description of the machine followed by a listing showing location, machine numbers and introduction dates, where known.
The files in this website are based on 'A Checklist of Electronic Ticket Issuing Points on British Railway and Light Rail Systems' by David Curson, published by the Transport Ticket Society in 1996, and which was later available on the internet. This new and updated version is being maintained by Matt Davis and Stuart Johnson , to whom any amendments or additions should be notified. Illustrations kindly supplied by Roger Marks from his Rail Ticket Gallery.
The files are in Adobe .pdf format, and individual lists may be downloaded by right-clicking and selecting 'Save Target as...'. If preferred, the complete set of files may be downloaded in 'Zip' file format. The APTIS file is also available for download separately as a 'Zip' file in view of its size.
