Leave your Oyster card here

Drop your Oyster card here

Drop your Oyster card here

We’ve not seen one of these before anywhere else on the network until we walked past this one at King’s Cross the other day – targeted presumably at people leaving London on the Eurostar.

Rather then leave unspent money on an Oyster card (and apparently there’s quite a lot of it sloshing around the system) you can drop your unwanted Oyster off here and any money on it will be taken back (including the £3 deposit, we wondered?) and given to the Railway Children charity.

We haven’t seen them anywhere else, but I wonder if there are also similar boxes down at Heathrow airport too …
