« on: Sunday 06 January 19 03:04 GMT (UK) »
Hello, found the ticket in granny house, how do you tell which metro station she bought the ticket? I looked all over the ticket, cannot find. Please help?

As I say in my first thread, metro ticket, is it enough specific? I can tell you more if you could tell me what I need to tell you.

Thank you

Maximum size of an attachment is 900 KB.
You need to reduce the size of the photo ;D

I refuse to use iPad, iPod and iPhone, so I can't offer any other advice.

The tickets don't have station names.  You can buy one anywhere including tobacconists and hotels and use it first miles way, it has to be validated in a mchine when you get on at the start of the journey which shows an inspector where you boarded and whether the journey you are doing is covered by the ticket.  They are zoned and time limited.  See examples at:

Quick caveat - what was the time frame?  I know the system has been in operation for some years but if it is some time ago then the ticketing may have different.
