  Ticket gates
by Britannia2

There are ticket gates at many London mainline termini. They are very similar to the gates on the Underground and the you must have a valid ticket to enter or leave the station through the gates.
For wheelchair users there is a extra wide gate and the gating assistant will open this for you on production of your ticket.
The gating assistant will also help with any issues with excess fares or faulty tickets.
There is a yellow plate on the gates for Oyster Card users to scan in and out of mainline stations on suburban services.
The photo shows the ticket gates at Waterloo.
