    Hi, I’m completely new at this and was wondering if anyone could give me a quick tutorial on getting Mk3 window labels from their holder? Thanks

    You ask the guard or another member of staff.

    If you're on a GWR service, they just peel off, as they're stuck to the windows

    But unauthorised removal is a criminal offence as well as potentially inconvenient.

    That's why I take them off at Journeys End before they're binned.

    Provided you don't take it during the journey there is basically no way you'll get prosecuted for removing a single use window label.

    Even still half the time the 'Normals' still don't know a thing about there train of travel in the direction and calling points. And its just wasting tree and I have seen them just put them into plastic bags so if its a named train then I would.

    I don't see TOCs prosecuting over a bit of paper, which costs them a few pence to make.

    Asking is likely to get a positive response if at the end of the journey. There have been a couple of journeys where the guard actually came and offered one without us asking (having realised we were enthusiasts) - I think that may have been on the Paddington to Newquay service
