  • Why don't train ticket barriers take my outward ticket on arrival at my destination when the return journey ones do get taken?

    A quick google shows it's probably related to the 2FOR1 deals on attractions that are in conjunction with National Rail:-

    If you are making a one way journey or your ticket is valid for one day, you can use your National Rail tickets and offer vouchers only on the day of travel.

    If you are making a return journey, you can use your National Rail tickets and offer vouchers any day on or between your outward and return journeys. For example, if you arrived on Thursday and will return on Sunday, your tickets will be considered valid for the offers on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    ...

    How do I keep my train tickets to use them for a 2FOR1 offer?

    If you are worried that the ticket barrier will keep your ticket when you exit the station, please ask a member of staff to let you through manually. This will ensure you have retained your tickets in order to redeem 2FOR1 offers at attractions.

    So they let you keep the proof of your arrival.

    (I'd never heard of this type of offer before.)
