    Hello everyone, I've been booked a ticket by work for Manchester to zone 2.

    Can I use this on the DLR or is it just for the tube?

    I've not seen the ticket yet so don't know exact wording or restriction codes.

    Yes, tickets to "London Zone N" / "Zone N Londn" are valid on the DLR as well as LU.

    Is it also be valid on other TfL services like London Overground and TfL Rail?
    Of course, I know that London U12 ticket is not valid on National Rail services, but not sure if LO and TfL Rail are in exception...

    Bit of a can of worms there. Both LO and TfL Rail are definitely National Rail services, but the staff at those stations (particularly LO) like to think they're not. I'd stick to the letter here and not use them on those services.

    Fortunately I'll be leaving that can of worms for others :)

    Yeah. haha.
    I can think of one very obvious worms would be going to Willesden Junction from Euston on London Overground.
