Train ticket redesigns

It’s good to see the British railway ticket get some information design attention. Two proposals:

Neil Martin http://www.theworkof.co.uk/2011/06/17/the-journey-to-a-new-train-ticket/

Robert Hempsall http://www.roberthempsall.co.uk/uk-train-ticket-redesign/

Both proposals look at the rather bizarre layout of the very miscellaneous information on the ticket; Neil Martin also considers the possibilty that, as issuing multiple tickets for one journey (one per train) is a relic of the Victorian past, everything might go on a single 85 × 55 mm piece of card.

Neither is a perfect solution, but both give a welcome scratch to a long-standing itch. Wonder if anyone from the ‘Rail Settlement Plan’ is paying attention.
