Passenger buying a ticket, by Chris Hogg, 27 January 1993. By the 1990s tickets were processed by computer and were printed when bought. It is now possible to buy train tickets over the internet. However, in the earlier part of the 20th century tickets were pre-printed with every possible destination and fare!
