I noticed today that ticket machines that previously didn't are now
offering the option to top up pre-pay ostercards and to buy new (rather
than renew old) monthly and weekly travelcards and bus passes).

The buy new has been there for a little while but the top up pre-pay
is certainly new!

Seen at Leyton on Friday as well, and I duly topped up with a fiver (on
top of my existing monthly). Guessing it was introduced on the quiet,
either on the 28th of September (timetable change day for National Rail)
or the 1st of October.

Does anyone know if the gates know about pre-pay yet? I'm tempted
to see if an OysterCard with some credit on will open a gate my
pass won't next time I get the chance.

Not got a clue at present...Dunno if staff have been briefed on it yet
