Your comments and questions

Carlton Which station on this route can I buy a travel city card with the rail logo on it?

Staff Hi Carlton. I'm not sure what you mean. Do you need a paper travelcard for the 2for1 offer? You can only get those from the ticket offices in national rail stations, like Kings Cross, with the little red rail symbol next to it on the underground map

Patricia Nolan Are there any plans to install a lift at swiss cottage? Highly necessary at a well-used station. Thanks.
