Default !6 Character station/location names

Does anyone now the 26 character names for any of the newly opened stations in the last 2 years or so of if they even exists given new ticketing systems? i.e. as they would appear on a traditional ticket.

If you search on www.brfares.com it should show the station names as they appear on a ticket, eg http://www.brfares.com/#!fares?orig=ECP&dest=CDF

To be precise, the names as they are shown on the ticket are shown when you click through to an individual ticket. The names shown on the "list of all fares" screen are the internal fares database names which can sometimes be different. Not in this case, but in some, e.g. compare:

http://www.brfares.com/#!fares?orig=SAD&dest=JEQ
SANDWELL & DUDLY
JEWELLERY QUARTR

with this: http://www.brfares.com/#faredetail?o...te=201&tkt=SDS
SANDWELL + DUDLY
JEWELLRY QUARTER

The latter are what should be printed on the ticket, unless the ticket machine has a software bug and uses the wrong version, which some Parkeon machines did for a while - see here: http://www.railforums.co.uk/showpost...5&postcount=12 where maniacmartin compared the same fare issued from a Scheidt & Bachmann machine with a broken Parkeon one.
