hello everyone,

was recently looking at some of the train tickets i have had on some of the journeys i have made and there was one thing on there that i have always wondered what it meant.
(my appologies if this has already been brought up before)

when looking at the destination, it would say something like this:

from
POOLE *

to
WEYMOUTH *

i am wondering what the stars mean after the stations. This was on a single and on a return it was something like this
from
Soton ctrl

to
bath spa *

cheers,

Dan

That is correct, eg Reading and Reading West.

Worse still, Nottingham to Loughborough, becoming Nottingham to Loughborough Junction.

There are also some stations with a full stop after the name, which actually shows up on platform tickets and rovers as well as normal tickets, eg, Bolton is Bolton.*, I know there is some significance of the full stop, but I cant remember what it is.

And other stations have text added after them. Shirley becomes Shirley W Mids, not because there is 2 stations called that, but to stop people changing it to Shipley.

Q is Cheque and W is Warrant/Rail Travel Voucher
When Thameslink were using APTIS then RTV came under W however when the new TIS came in they went under M because they are entered as a sundry item rather than a warrant so when the ticket was printed it was done as M.
