Back in June last year I reported on an issue when changing at Blackfriars between platform 1 and platforms 2-4. I was reminded about this issue a few days ago so decided to go and try it out. I’m delighted to report that it appears to have been fixed.
The journey I made was Kentish Town to Denmark Hill where the fastest journey involved changing at Blackfriars onto a Sevenoaks train which started in platform 3. Although the gates were actually locked open I still touched out from platform 1 and back in at platforms 2-4 and the charge made was for a National Rail only zone 1-2 journey, as it should be.
