    If I purchase a 16-25 railcard at a station, can I then, at the same time, buy a train ticket and have the railcard discount? Or do I need to wait a while for the railcard to become valid? Thank you

    You can use it straight away, it's not like a smart card, it's just something you present to a ticket inspector.

    They issue it on the spot and you can begin using it immediately.
