Default Last LUL ticket offices

New ticket machines have now been installed at Gunnersbury and Kew Gardens. They offer tickets to all National Rail stations (I tried Penzance and Wick), and tickets starting from other stations. The menu also had a grayed out button for ticket collection, and Oyster Travel card extensions outside the zones just led to a blank screen.

At the moment, the ticket offices at Kew Gardens and Gunnersbury seem to be open. No sign of any change at the Bakerloo stations.

LO are gradually replacing the inherited Scheidt & Bachmann TVMs with Cubic TVMs - an updated model of those on the DLR.

Do the new machines report to Oyster where top-ups are made? Last time I
topped up at Kew Gardens, Finchley Road & Frognal and Hackney Downs between
August last year and March it just reported the top-up without a location.
