At the station you have to pay 20p to pee. I don't mind having to pay but some woman next to me had to pay 3 times. just for one child and herself just to watch the other one pee. I know there's no way to vet who is actually peeing but I feel really Annoyed on her behalf.

If the dc was young enough to need help, I'd have just picked them up to go through the barrier and pay once tbh.

There are 2 in our town and they don't expect you to pay for children, and always ask if I want to go in with them (for free).

It's hardly a fortune but tbh if they are young enough to need assisting having a wee, pick he buggers up and pay for yourself only.

I guess she could of picked them up I don't think then being young enough was the issue was big station heaving and toilets on two floors

TBH, when the train fares are a gazillion pounds already, she probably wasn't too worried about 60p.

The children could have nipped under the barriers if they were too big to be carried.

Was there not an attendant? How else might you get a pram or wheelchair through?

I just pick my DC up in this situation confused

Just pick up the children, or have them sneak under. I wouldn't pay three times.

If you are in London you have to pay for everyone because the barriers are all manned by really really scary officious attendants - no picking up toddlers. No wonder London is not benefitiing from a currency fall tourist boom in the same way as the rest of the country.

No one there manning it just those barriers that go round
