Shame, I occasionally buy extension tickets (60+ Oyster) to beyond Crews Hill from the helpful staff at Alex Palace station. I don't know how to do that on a ticket machine, I suspect that AP will be the next one on the list for closure.

I haven't tried it yet, but today the Harringay ticket office staff assured me that for Freedom Pass or 60+Oyster card holders, buying tickets from Crews Hill to stations north of there can be done on the machine outside the week-to-go-till-closure ticket office.

The other 'last station' inside the Freedom Pass/60+ boundary (towards Welwyn) is Hadley Wood.

A second machine is to be installed imminently they also said, pointing to a newly made hatch for it.

I wouldn't be too despondent about AP, it has longer opening hours (also Saturday till mid-afternoon) than Harringay or Hornsey.

I've tried the 'choose different departure station' option now, it works fine.

Image 1 - the 'Start' screen. Touch the ''A-Z destination finder' tile.

Image 2: the next screen. The large tile on right-hand side states:

'Press here to choose different departure station or extend your Travelcard'.

You then get a 'type the letters' screen and go on from there.  The pictures are a bit ropey since the screen is in full daylight and hard to see or photograph.

When I buy a 60-plus Oyster extension ticket at a station ticket office, they are usually marked 'London fare zone 6' to wherever I'm heading - i.e. I don't have to know which is the appropriate last station to buy the ticket from. Is there a similar option here?

There is no such 'button' or tile on the ticket machine, regrettably; one needs to check the Freedom Pass/Oyster 60+ map to find the last valid station, then book onwards from there as shown above.

Johnson started it with Tube ticket offices.

Overground now see an opportunity and National Rail will not be far behind!
