The “ticket office”


Godstone Railway Station doesn’t have a ticket office: it has this automated vending machine. These engineers didn’t explain what was wrong with the machine, but I had to buy my ticket on the train as the machine was undergoing serious maintenance (they weren’t simply replacing the paper or ink).  That suited me fine: one of the limitations of these machines is that you can only buy a ticket from the location of the machine to a destination station. In my case I wanted a single from Godstone to Three Bridges, but also another single from Eridge to Oxted, as I intended to cycle between Three Bridges and Eridge. The conductor on the trains is able to issue both tickets simultaneously.
