A new ticket machine is in place at each entrance at street level, but not working as at 10 August. Being at street level makes them suitable for buying tickets to open the gates that must surely come with the introduction of Oyster PAYG (pre-pay) on Sunday November 11 when the line becomes part of the London Overground. The Shere machines have a circular blanking plate, perhaps for the Oyster reader/writer to be fitted later. They will have to be Oyster compatible. The address label gives details of Silverlink, who will cease to be involved from 11 November – so perhaps they’ll be brought into service before November.
I believe ticket machines have been installed at other stations along the line.
