Booking tickets at this time was a more complicated procedure than it is now. Different tickets were needed for all the different classes and destinations, as well as large seating or sleeping plans for every train for the booking clerk to fill in. At this time, tickets were issued that were already printed with the destination, the class and the fare, so there were tickets for every possible journey.
