Is there any way that ATOC might be able to ensure that Anytime Returns are cancelled for the sections which have been used. As mentioned previously, these tickets give a huge amount of flexibility and when used are often simply marked with pen or (regularly in Northern England) not even marked at all. Since I personally do not tend to throw away tickets immediately after use, I have several Anytime Returns which have not been marked and of which the returns are valid for a month and if I so wished I could probably use some of these several times over without a Northern guard even marking anything. As most people will know, commuters have been known to buy one of these tickets in each direction and use the return for the whole month. So it would seem sensible for guards to mark on the back of the tickets in biro or permanent marker which sections had been used e. g. in the format Origin - Destination dd/mm Time/Headcode. Any future redesign of tickets also should perhaps take this into account. Do you also think that ATOC/TOCs need to take some action and if so in why way?
