    Won't these result in more fare dodging? Could someone depart from a non barrier station that does has ticket machines and then only buy an e-ticket if a guard is checking tickets?

    SBB (Switzerland) say an M- or E-ticket is not valid if it was purchased after the train departed from your boarding station. The UK TOCs seem not to do this - I have heard a LNR guard actually telling people to buy one on board "as the inspectors were getting on soon" and he didn't have a ticket machine.
