    I will go to Windsor at 15:00 first from Staines and then Ashford (Surrey) at 18:00 tomorrow. I am going to purchase an off peak return ticket between Ashford and Windsor & Eton Riverside. However, my closest railway station is Staines. So my question is, can I use the "out" ticket (Ashford - Windsor and Eton Riverside) at Staines ticket barriers? Will I be able to go through and is this ticket valid on the journey from Staines - Windsor & Eton Riverside? Thanks.

    Do you mean you want to travel tomorrow at 1500 from Staines to Windsor, then at 1800 from Windsor to Ashford, and wonder if the Ashford - Windsor & Eton Riverside Off-Peak Day Return ticket is valid for the itinerary?

    The Off-Peak Day Return costs £4.90 and has no break of journey restriction. Staines is between Ashford and Windsor on the shortest route so the answer is yes.

    I agree with bb21.
    Yes, you can use it. It may or may not operate the barriers. That has no impact on its validity. As bb21 says, it is valid.
    If the ticket fails to operate the barriers, show it to a member of staff and say you're resuming your outward journey having broken it at Staines.
    Yes.
