For the purposes of the SCRCA Project, this is the main passenger-related building at railway stations - i.e. the building from which tickets are (or were) sold. In most cases, this building provided most of the facilities for passengers and most or all of the accommodation for station staff.
Please note that, with the exception of Settle, Appleby and Carlisle, these structures are now privately owned or leased and that they no longer provide 'booking' facilities (i.e ticket sales) for rail travellers. Passengers boarding a normal service train at one of the 'open' stations that has no ticket office can purchase a ticket on the train. For information regarding timetables, fares, ticket sales, etc., please refer to the National Rail Enquiries website at:
