    Is there a railcard for people aged 26 and over to transfer to when the 16-25 young persons railcard expired?

    You have to pay normal prices some time, so no.

    EDIT: There isn't a general one that covers all operators anyway.

    Some rail operators operate various discount cards, have a look on their websites.

    Different rail operators have different discounts Like monthy passes which give you money off etc.

    If you are a full time mature student (any age - I am nearly 60), you can get the young persons railcard. You get some odd looks when you use it. I had to get my application signed by someone at the university and an official UEA stamp and then just went to the station with a photo.
    I wish I had known this earlier. Would have saved loads over the last 2 years.

    You can get the 16-25 card if you are sill in education.

    As others have said, if you are a student you can get one.

    if you are still in full time education, you can get national rail care. All you need is a letter form your education institution confirming that you are in full time education.

    Hope this helps.
