    Mike,

    I have a question that may have been answered already. But please bear with me,if I look at the Veterans map.pdf this shows that it is possable to use my card by only using TFL Free travel at any time on London Overground and TfL Rail (VETERANS CONCESSIONARY TRAVEL SCHEME) top right to get to Reading can you confirm.

    Thanks Laurence

    Hi Laurence,

    Yes, that is correct. My understanding is that the veterans scheme is treated like the disabled freedom pass which is still valid at any time on TfL services. Between West Drayton and Reading you will have to use the TfL Rail services, so no hopping on a fast Great Western express.

    Thank you for your update and no hopping on the GWR. The problem I have forseen, is that I am ok on the TLF trains but exit or entry at reading will be the problem as I will not have a ticket, as the tech does not work with the oyster cards at reading. So can I take your reply as the voice of TLF,or should I take this up at TFL? Which I can then take back to Reading (GWR).

    I’m not the voice of TfL, but you won’t have a problem at Reading. Your Veterans Oyster Card is your ticket and if you show it to gateline staff they will let you out/in.
