I live close to a NR station and the nearest underground or travel stop is several miles away. I turn 60 shortly and I have discovered that I can order a Senior Railcard online 2 weeks in advance of my birthday. However I now won’t be able to link it to an oyster card until I’ve made a journey to an underground station (or travel stop). Do you happen to know if:
1. The system will retrospectively discount the initial journey that day once the link has been made (and will it give me the discounted cap)?
2. Can I get the railcard linked a few days before my birthday when I visit an underground station so that the discount starts as soon as the railcard becomes valid?
