Forthcoming Holidays and Trips
Having returned from my trip described in the post below, I went through the Journey History on my TfL Oyster app and found an interesting phenomenon.
The trip from Kings Cross St Pancras to Orpington cost me £3.70 but the trip from Orpington to St Pancras only cost me £2.70.
It took me a while to twig why that was, but it is plainly because I used the Underground between Kings Cross and London Bridge on the way there and Thameslink (which is part of the national rail network) on the way back.
The change of mode involving an extra touch-out, touch-in at London Bridge cost me £1, whereas by using a rail connection the charge was as for an unbroken journey because I had not passed through any barriers.
So .... always Thameslink in future (it's a more pleasant ride anyway).
